New Found Glory Premieres Music Video For “This Is Me”
Original Song taken from The Greatest Showman
New Found Glory have taken on one of the biggest film soundtracks in recent history with their cover of “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman. Premiering exclusively with Variety, the track and video maintain the excitement and pride from the original film version while adding an iconic Pop-Punk feel as only New Found Glory can do. In an exclusive interview, guitarist Chad Gilbert shares that this song, more so than any other song from their upcoming record From The Screen To Your Stereo 3, felt like it could have originally been a New Found Glory song. “What’s really cool about ‘This is Me’ is that our friends loved the song. Older punk rock fans don’t know ‘The Greatest Showman,’ haven’t seen the movie. And they hear that song and they’re like, ‘This just sounds like an awesome New Found Glory song. This is a really good song.’” Fans can check out the first listen of the track and brand new music video over at Variety.com.
Due out May 3, 2019 via Hopeless Records, the upcoming album is the third installment of New Found Glory’s critically acclaimed nostalgic movie cover records. Not only did the band self-record the EP, they also self-produced the music videos for all 7 tracks! Fans can pre-order From The Screen To Your Stereo 3 along with exclusive merchandise bundles today at smarturl.it/nfgmerch.
Featuring today’s release along with fun and energetic NFG versions of movie soundtrack songs including “Let It Go” from Frozen, “Eye Of the Tiger” from Rocky 3, “Power of Love” from Back to the Future, “Cups” from Pitch Perfect, “A Thousand Years” from Twilight Breaking Dawn and “Accidentally In Love” from Shrek, this is set to be an album that music and movie lovers of all ages are sure to enjoy. Both New Found Glory and fans alike have been enjoying these re-imagined tracks for nearly 20 years, with the first collection of iconic tracks being released back in 2000.
Looking ahead to this Summer, fans will have the chance to hear “The Power of Love” along with the other infectious cover tracks on the From The Screen To Your Stereo To Your Town Tour! New Found Glory will be joined by Real Friends, The Early November and Doll Skin for a stacked lineup that will be taking off across the United States beginning on May 30th.
