The Voice UK coach collaborated with the former One Direction star on the breakup track, and the clip sees them driving along a country road in an open-top car wearing vintage outfits.
It’s basically Bonnie & Clyde, as the visuals end with a fleet of police cars cornering them at the gas station.
Anne-Marie had a great time working with Niall and said Metro.co.uk while promoting his new campaign with O2: “Niall and I walked into the studio and started writing. It was great working with him.
“The clip was so much fun! He was a cool partner. I think we intentionally didn’t want to play each other like lovey-dovey and be on top of each other.
“It was good to have him as a criminal partner.”
On the possibility of a second collaboration, Anne-Marie teased: “I think we would definitely work together again and the next video could be the next step in what comes after. [the cliffhanger]. ‘
Sharing the inspiration behind Our Song, the pop star laughed, “I always pull from past breakups, in fact probably too much. [laughs].
‘Imagine having that song with your ex that you now hate and now they messed it up for you because they were a ***** e? How many people have had this song that reminds them of this relationship, whether happy or sad, there is still this song. ‘
Anne-Marie has partnered with O2 for their Here Comes Brighter campaign, which includes heartwarming advertising that is sure to boost morale. The soundtrack for the Anne-Marie Ooh Child cover, originally sung by Five Stairsteps, is produced by Rudimental.
“I actually sang it with a smile and tried to feel that emotion,” the singer said. “The visuals in the ad compliment her so much.
“I watched the original video and worked with Rudimental on it and felt like it was really uplifting and the campaign is making people really excited to get out of lockdown and be able to actually doing things again. ”
Opening up on her personal experience during the pandemic, Anne-Marie revealed, “For me personally, this song is the perfect response to getting out of lockdown because I really broke lockdown.
“I just remember being stuck in a pit of shit and thinking, where am I going?” What am I doing? Everything was going badly but I slowly started to get better, to go to therapy and I was working on myself, better and better.
“I think a lot of people felt that way.”
Anne-Marie, 29, is fresh out of her debut series on The Voice UK, which she won with competitor Craig Eddie.
“I loved it, it was such an amazing experience to be sitting next to [Sir] Tom Jones, will.i.am and Olly [Murs]. It was crazy, ”she recalls.
“Especially during a pandemic where you couldn’t see people, having the opportunity to be among the fans and work with friends was great.
“I would love to come back. ”
The singer developed a particularly close bond with Sir Tom, whom she described as “so amazing”.
“I love to sit with him and listen to his stories,” she said affectionately. “Every time I ask him, ‘Don’t you find this all boring now? He’s like, “No. Every year that I’m alive is a [great year]”. ‘
She then joked, “I like it about him and I hope I’ll be like this when I’m older and not senile.”
Last week, Anne-Marie announced the exciting news of her second album, titled Therapy, which will be released on July 23.
Teasing what to expect, the songwriter said, “I wrote so much music from the last album and when I got locked out the only thing I could do was write music. Usually we were busy before and it was always a battle between the two.
“In this one I also saw a therapist and every week I did a therapy session and obviously we feel better, helps us understand situations and helps us overcome grief. But also seeing a therapist has completely changed my life and me as a person.
“So I wanted to dedicate this to that time in my life and open up the conversation about mental health, which I do anyway, but doing it in my music is a cool thing.”
She added, “It’s not just about the brain, it’s about having a sad breakup, revenge songs, angry songs.
“I feel like I can do it with a title like therapy because you go through all the emotions during a therapy session.”
Anne-Marie recorded Ooh Child with House Gospel Choir, produced by Rudimental for the last priority O2 Here Comes Brighter campaign.
