Background Information

The first single from Andrea Corr’s 2007 album “Ten Feet High” was the song “Shame on You (To Keep My Love From Me)” which was issued two weeks in advance of the album on CD, and even earlier on May 29, 2007 in digital format through iTunes. The song is a protest song, written from the viewpoint of a woman who’s partner has gone off to war. The entire album was executive produced by Bono and Gavin Friday, and this single release also carries that credit. A promotional single for “Shame on You” dropped the credit for Bono and Gavin in the liner notes but it is here in the single.

The single was released with two tracks, both versions of the title track. One is the main version featured on the album. The second is an edit which was remixed for the radio. The single was released in the UK and Ireland. It was not released commercially in other countries, but promotional versions were made available. This single was the only physical release from the album, a second single, “Champagne from a Straw” was only released digitally and as a promotional CD.

A video was produced for “Shame on You”, and was directed by Dani Jacobs. The video opens with Andrea Corr singing against a wall to which is pinned many photos of children. The video then cuts to scenes of children fighting in wars and various conflicts.
