Fred Lessore is a London-based singer-songwriter and musician of Anglo-French and Malagasy descent. Not too long ago, he released a music video for his “Linger” single.

Fred Lessore – “Linger” music video

“Once I had seen Bambi’s work, I knew that she was the perfect collaborator for ‘Linger’. Together with Xabier Celaya, we put together a striking visual that doesn’t just add context to the song. It’s become a graphic narrative that elevates ‘Linger’ and has created an entirely different achievement in itself.” – Fred Lessore

The stunning retro-futuristic spectacle tells a tale of loss, love, and acceptance. The storyline follows an android call girl as she begins to experience self-awareness and human emotion. After developing feelings for one of her clients, she takes a stand against the ever-upgrading expectations of modern technology.

Taking inspiration from Blade Runner and Japanese anime, ‘Linger’ embodies the young songwriter’s musical style. Also, it delivers an extraordinary narrative that complements the peaks and valleys of the song’s already beautiful simplicity.

“At its core, ‘Linger’ is about inner conflict. Also, it questions the vital art of letting go, the desire to move on, and the willingness to live in hope that one day, our scars will begin to heal.” – Fred Lessore

‘Linger’, written from the perspective of a woman facing doubt, pulls on the shadows of a past love. Also, it confronts the burning question many of us have to ask ourselves: Am I ready to try again?  The likable tune was produced by Pete Boxsta Martin (James Arthur, Jessie J).

“It took me less than 20 minutes to write and record the demo for ‘Linger’. It was easy to pull inspiration from the strong women in my family. I’ve seen each of them carry their battle scars with grace, dignity, and acceptance. At the crossroads of love and loss, ‘Linger’ is a drop in the ocean of what it might take to build a strong woman, and I only hope that I’ve done them justice.” – Fred Lessore
