Hong Kong-based artist-producer Zight has dropped a new single and music video for ‘Everybody Keep Running’ featuring the vocal talent of Peter Forest.

Since his breakout single ‘Fly Away’ in January, Zight returns with an uplifting EDM track. Inspired by the determination of long-distance runners for the Tokyo Olympics, ‘Everybody Keep Running’ contains a positive message – to keep trying in the face adversity.

Featuring the vocals of Peter Forest, Zight has recruited South African runner Sibusiso ‘Sibu’ Madikizela to star in the sing;e’s music video.

Zight says,

“With all my music I want to uplift people and make them feel better. I was inspired by the athletes, especially the runners who came to the Olympics despite the global pandemic and competed for their countries and for the world. Keep Running is for everyone who has had a tough couple of years – if we just keep running and trying, we’ll get through it.”

Peter Forest adds,

“Quite a few of my fans and followers are from different regions in Asia, yet I never had a chance to work with another Asian artist before Zight, so I’m really grateful that our collab opened the perfect window of opportunity for me. Needless to say, Zight’s music production skills are exceptional. Right from when I first listened to the demo I knew this track was special.”

Runner Sibu says,

“I was happy to join the video and it was easy for me to agree because the music video and the song are about something I do every day running. I’m over the moon, and very excited to see the song’s success.”
