ADRIAN EAGLE Drops Animated Video For New Single ‘Housing Trust’

Fresh off the back of his biggest headline tour to date, the release of acclaimed feel good anthem A.O.K, and a sincere rendition of Ocean Alley’s Confidence for Like A Version, Adrian Eagle has returned with latest single Housing Trust, now complete with cartoon visuals telling the story in just-released video directed and animated by Chaz Bottoms.

The track tells the story of Adrian‘s rise from living in the Housing Trust in Adelaide to winning an ARIA award and travelling the world with his powerful message of overcoming struggles and spreading positivity.

The video is an animated depiction of that journey, as cartoon Adrian daydreams going from his life in housing trust, to standing on big stages sharing his message with the world.

Channelling his now trademark street-gospel sound Housing Trust – an ode to Eagle’s hometown of Adelaide – is an upbeat yet reflective track which sees Adrian juxtapose a troubled upbringing and struggling family life against the opportunities now afforded to him as an artist.

Co-written and produced by long-time collaborator Jerome Farah (the architect behind Kian’s debut single Waiting), Housing Trust features Adrian’s signature soulful vocals alongside vibrant organs and hip-hop true percussion.
