The Child Of Lov unveils 'Give It To The People' video – watch

The NME Radar Award winner released his debut album in May

The Child Of Lov has unveiled the video for his new single, 'Give It To The People'.

The Child of Lov recently cancelled all of his scheduled live dates, including a performance at Glastonbury. He also was scheduled to perform at other festivals including Benicassim and Bestival.

Speaking to NME about the reasons behind his decision, he says: "If there's one thing I know, it is that I have to be able to express myself in what I do musically. I will not go as far as saying that performing live is worth less artistically than producing and composing a record, but on a creative level, they are two entirely different things."

He added: "Even though I do feel pressure to do a tour that involves some great festivals lately, I've come to realise that playing gigs cannot occupy a rewarding role if it is not exactly as I envisioned it, exactly as I want it, and exactly the way I know the audience deserves it. "

The NME Radar Award winner released his debut, self-titled album last month on the Domino label. Read NME's review of the LP by clicking here.
