Australia: Kate Miller-Heidke drops her new single “This Is Not Forever’”
The Australian Eurovision 2019 act Kate Miller-Heidke returns with some new piece of work with her brand new single “This is not forever”.
Kate Miller-Heidke has released her new single, This is not forever, a title which immediately directs us to think the current situation covid-19 has got us into and how we wish this not to be forever. However, Kate’s new song was composed before the covid-19 pandemic and carries some strong messages according to what herself say on her twitter account, explaining the meaning of her new song:
I wrote it about six months ago, before all… this… happened. It’s about watching someone very close to you starting fall into a depression, and wanting to let them know that you’re there for them, in a very serious way.

Along with the track was released the music video which was a collaboration with director Christiaan Van Vuuren and choreographer Lucas Jervies. It was shot in isolation by each dancer on the phone and subsequently pieced together by Van Vuuren.
