Behind the Video: Guy Sebastian's "Battle Scars" (feat. Lupe Fiasco) music video
Guy Sebastian and Lupe Fiasco recently joined forces to release their first emotive collaboration, "Battle Scars".
Sebastian sat down for a chat with NovaFM to discuss the meaning behind his new song.
"It's about your own personal battle scars and for every individual those are different; some might be words or labels... it might be relationship scars,” Sebastian explains.
“When I wrote this song, and when Lupe wrote his bits, we just really wanted it to be something that just inspired people to, sort of, confront those things, and also maybe try and work to think about burying and ripping up those labels; throwing them away."
The X Factor Australia judge says one of the strongest visuals from the music video are the words people chose to use to symbolise their pain.
“There’s this really poignant moment in the video where we just got a whole bunch of random people in New York City to write down what they felt their scars were and hold them up....It really spoke to me, in many ways.”
