Alison Moyet has been a favorite in the music industry since the beginning of the 80s. Known for her bluesy, contralto vocals reminiscent of David Bowie, her UK album sales have reached a certified 2.3 million with over a million singles sold; all seven of her studio albums and three complication albums have charted in the Top 30 UK Album Chart with two of the albums reaching number one. HIP Video Promo is proud to introduce her mesmerizing new video clip “When I Was Your Girl.”

Moyet began her mainstream pop career in 1982 at the young age of 21. She formed the synth/pop duo known as Yazoo with former Depeche Mode member, Vince Clark having several hits such as “Only You,” “Don’t Go,” “Situation,” and “Nobody’s Diary.” By 1983, Moyet and Clarke decided to disband Yazoo where Moyet signed to CBS to embark on her solo career. In 1984, Moyet released her debut solo album Alf, which immediately became a hit in Britain reaching No. 1 in the album chart. During the beginning of her career, Alison performed alongside popular musicians such as Paul Young, David Bowie, and Pete Townshend. She also provided vocals for Paul McCartney’s “Let It Be” one evening during a microphone mishap.

After some struggles with Sony, Moyet was signed to Sanctuary Records and released her first studio album after eight years! Hometime was produced by The Insects, and launched Alison into the top five best-selling female UK artists of 2002. She has received countless nominations including a BRIT Awards nomination for Best Female Vocalist as well as a Mercury Music Prize. Now, 2013 is looking at Alison Moyet in a new light. Her newest album the minutes, on Metropolis Records, is set for an upcoming release. HIP Video Promo is pleased to present you with “When I Was Your Girl,” a clip that gives us a preview for what to expect from her new album.

The clip portrays Moyet in a reminiscent light, focusing on the main story of “When I Was Your Girl.” What we would call a younger version of her sets up the scene mouthing the lyrics of the sultry vocals. We watch as Moyet emerges, almost from out of the fog, to tell the tale of love and loss. The somber scenes focus on Alison’s breathtaking ability to tell tales through music, and the vocals soar as they take us through an emotional tide. “When I Was Your Girl” introduces viewers to the upcoming album.

The vocals of this classic star are timeless and “When I Was Your Girl” proves how fruitful Moyet’s music has become. The classic quality of her vocals and the powerful energy that exists behind every chord stands out boldly.
