Professor Green Gears Up To Release His New Video Later This Week
Stephen Paul Manderson, better known as Professor Green, is set to grace our screens with another new video from his sophomore album, 'At Your Inconvenience'. 'Never A Right Time' is the follow-up single to his number one, Emeli Sande-featuring smash hit, 'Read All About It'.
The Professor recently sat down with RTE to speak on the idea behind the 'Never A Right Time': "I had the idea for ages. Ed Drewitt was on tour with me so I got Ed to sing it because, when I was singing it, I couldn't really make sense of it and it sounded really good once he did. Then we eventually got in the studio and we did ‘Never Be a Right Time’ and ‘Today I Cried’ in the same day.
"It's not about any one person, it takes different parts of different relationships. I still find that intimacy on records easy and I think it's the most important part of music. The only artists I ever really attach myself to and I really got into were honest and open. They gave me something to listen to and understand and be intrigued by. They never gave you everything, but enough to really keep you interested."
Pro later spoke on shooting the new video which also features Keisha Lall and admitted it wasn’t the easiest video to film: "Not least of all because I've had to act in the majority of it. I could have got an actor to do it but where would be the fun in that. I like to take myself out of my comfort zone. I had to not only act but do a scene which involved intimacy, and I'm not one for PDA you know.
"Take it home. A peck on the lips to say goodbye is cool, but if you're not fifteen, what are you doing eating each other's face on the road for? It was cool, we got through it. I don't think either of us are too traumatised by it. I'm not, she might be."
With that said, check the sneaky preview of the behind the scenes footage below. The full video for 'Never A Right Time' will be debuted on Vevo at midnight this coming Thursday.
