X Factor's Ben Haenow reveals new music video for single 'Alive'

Ben Haenow Alive Music Video

Former X Factor winner Ben Haenow has revealed his new music video for single 'Alive'.

The 2014 X Factor champ invites the world to witness his phenomenal skills as a live performer in the video, as he belts out his track with his band (including brother Alex) in front of an audience of superfans.

Speaking about the video shoot - which took place at Fu Manchu in London last week - showman Ben said: "Making the video was great fun.

"It was really nice to have my bro with me, though he's no Kelly Clarkson lol.

"We filled the club with smoke. At most points, we couldn't see the cameras so it just felt like a performance.

"Obviously as it's the first single and video since going independent, and my sound has developed and changed a fair bit from the first album, the video feels a bit more gritty and edgy which kind of felt more natural.

"No gimmicks, no huge budget and no running through streets (which I'm grateful for as I'm getting on a bit) so it was just me and the band. Having the fans there was a real buzz too and, for me, it felt like being part of something special."

Ben's brand new track Alive is out to download and stream now ahead of his brand new tour later this year.

Ben previously announced a number of gigs as part of 'The Rising Tour' across the UK from December 5 in Birmingham.

He'll then travel to gigs in Oxford, Liverpool, Leeds and London, amongst others.

Alex Haenow, Ben’s brother, will once again be taking to the stage to showcase his impressive guitar skills at each and every show.

Ben’s new shows will be in support of his forthcoming five-track EP. The record is set for release later this year.

The new release will also include three more original songs plus a unique rendition of ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ by Bill Withers.

Dates and tickets for The Rising Tour are available here.
