Bugzy Malone has released his newest song Don’t Cry featuring Irish singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy. The song tells the story of a near fatal motorbike accident Bugzy, real name Aaron Davis, was a part of in March of this year. He was riding a bike through Manchester when the bike ploughed into the side of an Audi.
At the time of the accident he wrote on social media; “They tell me I’m lucky to be alive but although I sustained serious injuries at the time I lost consciousness so I don’t remember much, what I do remember is the non-stop love.” The song talks openly about bleeding out and potentially dying from injuries he had inflicted.
The song was also accompanied with an intense music video, directed by Myles Whittingham, shows the story of a tough boxing match. However, even though there is so much anguish in the video, there are also constant themes of love and support from the side of the ring, a perfect symbolism of the support Bugzy felt from his friends, loved one and fans throughout the accident.
Dermot Kennedy, who featured on the song, shared his pleasure and admiration of being a part of the project, taking to Instagram to say; “So inspired by your resilience and passion, thank you so much for having me on this one.” Bugzy replied to the post saying; “Thank you my brother, an honour to have you on the project!” followed by a love heart emoji.
This also comes following the news that Bugzy’s album The Resurrection will be out on January 22nd 2021. The album will feature Don’t Cry along with previously released singles M.E.N III and Doe’d Up.
