John Mitchell releases Take Me Home video

John Mitchell has released a video showcasing his cover of Phil Collins track Take Me Home.

It features on the Frost* and Lonely Robot man’s The Nostalgia Factory EP, which will be released on February 26.

The footage accompanying the studio track was taken from Mitchell’s recent Lonely Robot show at London’s Scala, an event which also featured former Touchstone singer Kim Seviour.

Mitchell says: “I’ve always had a lot of respect for Phil Collins and been a big fan. Take Me Home is an epic track and shows what a great songwriter Phil is. We played it live as an encore and it went down a storm.

“We actually hadn’t planned to do a video for any of the tracks on The Nostalgia Factory and we hadn’t planned to video the Scala show.

“However my good friend Nick McNamara dressed up as an astronaut and wandered around with a video camera. The footage was actually quite good so we thought we ought to use it and passed it over to Lee who did a great edit.”

The Nostalgia Factory is available for pre-order.
