Sheppard understands that moms are superheroes and that they should be appreciated as such. While ‘Thank You’ dropped on Mother’s Day, it’s a song that applies year-round! The song is a tribute to George, Amy, and Emma Sheppard’s mom Linda, who is an important part of their journey as a band. She’s been along for the ride in 60 countries, experiencing many shows, festivals, airports, and not so great hotels, watching their career thrive.
So of course, what better way to show their appreciation than a surprise song! What makes the surprise even sweeter is that they pulled it off during a lockdown, while she was right next door! Honestly, we need to up our gift game.
You can watch the video for the song here!
In order to make the video for ‘Thank You’ extra special, the band asked fans to send in footage of them spending time with their mothers. They turned that footage into a compilation, set to the song. It’s a beautiful music video that probably made those mamas feel extra special too.
We’ve gotta hand it to Sheppard, ‘Thank You’ is such a spectacular track. It’s a fun, toe-tapping track that’ll have you moving to the beat while reminiscing about mom. They really capture the essence of what our relationships with our moms can be like. From the playful child years to the moody teen years to the grateful adult years and everything in between. Put it on and listen with mom, or whoever you’re celebrating, it’ll be a great experience for the both of you!
Let’s be real, we should all be thanking Sheppard for this track. It’s a great tribute to the women in our life who helped shape us, and sometimes words mean more than any physical gift. If you’re not in close proximity to mom right now, send her this song! And call her! Let her know you’re thinking of her.
Sheppard’s ‘Thank You’ is the sixth song from their upcoming record. The tracks are being released month by month and we can’t wait to see the whole thing come together! Along with ‘Thank You,’ if you want to hear more from their new album, check out ‘Somebody Like You’ and ‘Come Back!’
