Zight’s Uplifting Track ‘Everybody Keep Running’ Ft. Peter Forest Is Inspired by Olympic Athletes
Hong Kong talent Zight returns to the release radar alongside London-based vocalist Peter Forest for their motivational new track ‘Everybody Keep Running’. The track follows on from Zight’s previous musical offering, ‘Fly Away‘, which saw global praise following its January release. Accompanying the release is the ‘Just Keep Running’ music video, which features Adidas-sponsored South African athlete Sibusiso Madikizela. ‘Just Keep Running’ is available now across all streaming platforms.
With all my music I want to uplift people and make them feel better. I was inspired by the athletes, especially the runners who came to the Olympics despite the global pandemic and competed for their countries and for the world. Keep Running is for everyone who has had a tough couple of years – if we just keep running and trying, we’ll get through it.
Peter Forest is a 24-year-old independent British singer-songwriter with releases under Sony, Warner Music, and more. His cover of Sia’s ‘Chandelier’ gained 1.4 million views on Youtube. Since he started songwriting at the age of 17, Peter has worked with dozens of EDM, pop, and future bass producers and DJs globally.
The uplifting track is rife with energy from the first beat, with encouraging lyrics paired in perfect synergy with the positive melody. Twinkling synths support the bouncing, feel-good bassline which is accompanied by a powerful piano chord. Peter Forest’s striking vocals stand at the core of the track, aiding a slow build that intensifies to reveal a burst of sonic synths and a powerful drop. ‘Everybody Keep Running’ is the perfect addition to any workout playlist, willing you on when you need it the most.
Supporting the motivational message of the track, the accompanying music video maintains the same narrative. Starring Sibusiso Madikizela, a professional marathon athlete from Cape Town, the Commonwealth, and Olympic hopeful serves as the perfect role model to portray the promising message. The story depicted in the music video is about a marathon runner, running across the whole country continuously for 2 days, looking for the holy place as his goal. Displaying the beautiful scenery of Cape Town and the seemingly effortless composure of Sibusiso, the video is the encouragement we all needed to push ourselves.
