The Used have sent out a message of hope for their new video for “The Lighthouse.” The song, which features Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus, can be found on The Used’s new album Heartwork.
The video comes a month after the band posted a statement on Twitter calling for fans and their loved ones alike to send in videos of essential workers battling on the front lines during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The video is a touching, heart-warming tribute that features fans of the band singing along and dancing to the track as they work during these uncertain times. The high spirits throughout the video are showcased in the nurses, doctors, delivery drivers, grocery store workers, and many others who are faced with the daily challenge of navigating through society during a pandemic. Many of the frontline workers featured in the video can be seen having a great time in one of the most uncertain times in the world’s history.
Along with the frontline employees who rightfully receive a majority of the spotlight, fans can also see the band (and Mark Hoppus as well) staying safe and sound in their homes. In a bit of a pick-me-up, the bands also showcase their families along with messages of thanks to those going out and working day after day. It truly is a touching video tribute to those who face the coronavirus head on with such high spirits.
If you find yourself enjoying “The Lighthouse feat. Mark Hoppus,” perhaps the new album is right for you. The Used released Heartwork last month as their eighth studio album, to much fanfare. The album showcases the band’s growing diversity while showcasing some of the strengths they forged on their earlier albums like In Love and Death.
