The Skinny have premiered Lomond Campbell‘s video for ‘The Lengths’, the latest track to be taken from his debut album ‘Black River Promise’ re-released on Heavenly Recordings last November.
Talking about the video, directed by the Coconut Island collective, which includes acclaimed Scottish photographers / film makers Brian Sweeney and Donald Milne, and shot around Lomond’s Scottish highland base, Lomond said:

“For The Lengths a pair of film-makers followed me around my corner of the highlands for a couple of days during winter.  I rambled and peddled my way through the landscape on the hunt for elusive deer horn with them in tow.”

And, on the track itself:

The Lengths was written in the last hour, on the last day of a week-long collaborative recording session with Slow Club, King Creosote, Pictish Trail & James Yorkston.  King Creosote liked the song so much he decided to record his own cover version of it.  It’s a song about going the distance with someone. Nice & simple.”

Black River Promise is a deeply personal record – introspective even – but the openness is tantalising, and the melodies infectious, suggesting this is no highland fling. –

Record Collector ★★★★

A beguiling album which recalls the graceful symphonic folk of Tims Hardin & Buckley. 

The Scotsman ★★★★

His songs are folk-ensouled like the donovan-reminiscent “Coal daughter”, the hymn-like “The Lengths” or the slowly intensifying “Hurl Them Further. 

– Rolling Stone ★★★★
