[WATCH] The Nursery – “Everybody’s Famous”

Toronto indie-pop quartet, The Nursery, have resurrected some dead celebrities in their new video for “Everybody’s Famous.” From Michael Jackson to Marilyn Monroe to Amy Winehouse, there’s no shortage of music legends as the band explores the toxic scene of celebrity culture and the modern obsession with fame. The song is set to be featured on the band’s forthcoming album, Life After Wartime, in 2017.

Songwriter Alex Pulec stated:

“‘Everybody’s Famous’ is about the manic and warped obsessions of seeking attention through inauthentic means. Social media tools are continually serving as a painkiller to pacify this twisted need to elevate our social statues to unrealistic heights. Fame should be the by-product of being remarkable at something – never the goal.”
