About a month ago we told you about Kurt Calleja filming the video for his new single Vertigo. Well now it’s all ready for us to enjoy. It really blasts the sunshine, so you better put on some SPF 30!

The video shows Kurt and his friends spending a day by the ocean. They end up at a party around a campfire and beneath a beautiful sunset. There’s a lot happening: from watersports to a boat party to men in tank tops and women in bikinis, it’s all about sun and fun. But it’s also a sweet love story between Kurt and his beautiful co-star—Miss Malta 2014.

The song itself is a great up-tempo summer track with a catchy chorus. Electronic Dance Music really suits Kurt’s style, and builds nicely on the sense of Maltese cool he’s been laying down. Kurt also shows some versatility with the song, as it’s totally different from his previous singles ‘Love On Mars’ and his Eurovision track ‘This Is The Night’

Vertigo lyrics – Kurt Calleja

Woke up in a sweat, it’s the same dream I get since I met you
I’m all up in the sky, realise that I ain’t got a parachute
So I drop like a stone as the clouds fly past
Can’t open my eyes, cloud’s coming up real fast
But I know I’m safe from harm
Free-fallin to your arms

Now we’ve come so far,
Yeah we’re half way up to the stars,
I got vertigo
Can’t speak, palms sweat, hands shake
Take my heart and don’t let go
We got so high so fast
Don’t tell me it won’t last
Cos if I lose you now, it’s gonna be so far to fall
I got vertigo

Got my head in a spin, baby you shoulda come with a warning
Got my feet on the ground but I’ve never been so scared of falling
And if I ain’t got nothing to fear, then why,
Why do I do I tremble? Why does my mouth go dry
When you’re here by my side?

Now we’ve come so far,
Yeah we’re half way up to the stars,
I got vertigo
Can’t speak, palms sweat, hands shake
Take my heart and don’t let go
We got so high so fast
Don’t tell me it won’t last
Cos if I lose you now, it’s gonna be so far to fall
I got vertigo

You know you lift me up
You’re love it takes me higher than the sun
But if I fall, look out below… vertigo

Now we’ve come so far,
Yeah we’re half way up to the stars,
I got vertigo
Can’t speak, palms sweat, hands shake
Take my heart and don’t let go
We got so high so fast
Don’t tell me it won’t last
Cos if I lose you now, it’s gonna be so far to fall
I got vertigo

What a horrible video. Kurtz looks so artificial. A song for plastic people.
