Today, scott helman returns with another brand new single and video for “collarbone” - out now. The beautifully shot video showcases not only scott, but a variety of different people being vulnerable in-front of the camera and being juxtaposed with couples embracing each other lovingly, and seeing past those insecurities, the perfect visuals to capture the sentiment of the song. 

helman is no stranger to being open in his music and lyrics, and  on the track he explains: “collarbone is a mutual confession. Our ability to hate ourselves is only getting more profound and insular, and I think when you say to someone, ‘the thing you hate about yourself is what i love about you,’ and they say it back, you find a whole new landscape of freedom. This song also returns to the ‘running away’ themes of ‘drive.’ I wrote it right before my move to LA, so it was heavily on my mind.”

 helman kicks off his first Canadian tour in 4 years next week. The tour start was delayed by a week on doctor's orders, as he had lost his voice but western Canada dates were rescheduled for later this month.  All original and VIP tickets are still valid.

Get to know scott:

Hi, I’m scott and this is a bit about me. When I figured out how to write a song one night in 2009, hours turned into days and weeks and years. I’ve picked up a lot of things, but it was the only thing I couldn’t put down. My ADHD has led me down many strange roads of hyper-fixation, and the little dopamine receptor in my brain drives me around the world pushing my face into the most obscure projects. Now I’m living in LA making new music. This body of music I have is really about the story of my life in one way or another. Most of it is about my relationship with my fiancée - we met when I was 15 and dated until the end of high school. We had a horrible, messy breakup and went our separate ways. Fast forward 3-4 years later, I was with my band in a sprinter van racing toward Montreal, where she lived, to play a show. I had heard she broke up with her boyfriend and knew right then that I still loved her. I invited her. She showed. We got back together and now we’re engaged. Sounds like a rom-com, I know. Within the scope of my latest tunes, not everyone is going to care about the whole trajectory of a 12-year love story, and that's ok. When we expose who we are for the selfish sake of being seen, we simultaneously illuminate others who feel like we do. I just hope to connect in whatever way I can, so that I may feel more connected in return.
