Snow Patrol Singer Explains His “Most Natural Song”

VIDEO: Frontman Gary Lightbody discusses the creation and meaning of his band's new single, "Crack the Shutters."

Just hours before Irish rock band Snow Patrol played an intimate tour opener at New York City’s 600-capacity Bowery Ballroom, frontman Gary Lightbody spoke with about “Crack the Shutters,” the new single from his group’s latest album, A Hundred Million Suns.

Below, watch Lightbody — a lanky, joke-cracking fellow — discuss the anthemic, piano-driven track’s creation and meaning. “It’s the most natural song on the record,” he says of “Crack the Shutters.” “And it’s about the most natural thing in the world.”
