Cara’s newest single, Dance is set to be released at the end of June and she is asking fans to send a snippet of them dancing to her newest track to stand a chance to be featured in the final music video.

“I wrote Dance the morning I found out that a close friend of mine was a drug addict. It made me stop and think. I wanted the song to be uplifting, about making the most of your life, always looking for that silver lining and loving yourself,” says Frew.

To enter, fans must email a high-quality landscape video of themselves dancing to a preview of her newest single ‘Dance’ to [email protected] before the 21st of June 2017. The preview will be available on Soundcloud.
