On the 26th April, we premiered our mascots single, ‘Nightline Bling’, at 8pm, in order to coincide with the reopening of Nightline Leicester for the night! It was the result of a lot of time and effort from multiple people-all of whom Nightline wishes to thank.
The process itself was interesting! After the idea and lyrics were fully realised, Freddie and a camera crew filmed footage for the video around campus; occasionally taking time out for pictures with fans! We then got to recording the actual song, with the help of LUSH, who kindly allowed us to use their recording equipment before it, along with the video footage, was sent off to the editors to piece both the sound and the film together.
After a final go-ahead from the university, Freddie the Bear is now a published artist and his debut song, Nightline Bling, can be viewed below:
We hope Nightline Bling will be a successful, light-hearted way of raising awareness amongst Leicester’s students of our services; in particular, our new Instant Messaging service, which is open to use between 8pm-8am every day during term time, alongside our telephones.
