Foy Vance is an Irish singer-songwriter whose folky tune “Coco” is about the waning of innocence as a girl grows up.
“From the first time Foy played ‘Coco’ for me – and ever time I’ve heard it since- I’ve felt he captured bot only Coco’s unique personality, but also the beautiful childhood innocence that sadly, but inevitably, fades with time,” Cox said according to Today.
In the video, Coco is seen waking up and getting ready for the day, walking around the beach, eating ice cream and riding her bike and hoverboard around. This is in direct contrast to what Vance does on a daily basis – wake up on a tour bus, walk around a city, and perform for an audience at night.
From the very beginning, Vance said that he wanted the video to be a mother-daughter project. Cox and Vance have been friends for years, so getting the two on board wasn’t a problem.
“They both have such beautifully inquisitive spirits and kind hearts,” Vance said. “Mix that with a killer sense of humour [sic] and you’ve got the Courteney/Coco double act!”
Congrats on your debut Coco!
