Foy Vance is a Northern Irish singer-songwriter. This is a track from The Wild Swan, his first album after signing to Ed Sheeran's Gingerbread Records. The song was inspired by Courteney Cox's daughter Coco Arquette. The 12-year-old also stars in the video, which was directed by her mom. Foy said: "As soon as I wrote the song 'Coco' - which started out as an off-the-cuff verse to make Coco laugh - it was obvious that Courteney would direct the video."
Courteney Cox first met Foy Vance through her boyfriend, Snow Patrol pianist Johnny McDaid. The Friends actress told People magazine: "Johnny brought Foy into my life a few years ago, and immediately, he became a very close friend. He also got to know my daughter, Coco, and a song was born."
Cox added: "From the first time Foy played 'Coco' for me – and every time I've heard it since – I've felt he captured, not only Coco's unique personality but also the beautiful childhood innocence that sadly, but inevitably fades with time."
A young Courtney Cox famously appeared in the 1984 music video for Bruce Springsteen's " Dancing In The Dark" as the adoring fan pulled onstage to dance with The Boss.
"Kickstart My Heart" is about all the ways Motley Crue gets their blood flowing without drugs. It was inspired by their bass player Nikki Sixx, who claimed he had to be revived with a shot of adrenaline to the heart after an overdose.
