New State of Mind by Michael Lee uk published on 2012/08/01 09:43:53 +0000 New State of Mind is the first single to be taken from my latest album, which is still under development currently. The Single will be released 03/10/2012 Starring in the video is Brentford Football Club's goalkeeper Richard Lee, who just so happens to be my older brother. The video re-enacts Richard's first season at Brentford where he made a less than glamorous start. Through hard work and having a NEW STATE OF MIND ;) he overcame his difficulties to have a great season. When writing the song I drew influence from Richard's story as well as using similar personal challenges of my own where I felt in a rut without direction. The song serves as a reminder that you can only achieve great things with a great state of mind. Richard has put his ideas into a sports psychology book called 'Graduation - Life Lessons of a Professional Footballer'. It's a great read and I thoroughly recommend checking it out.
