Written by Foy Vance, the song ‘Coco’ was inspired by Cox’s 12-year-old daughter.
Courteney Cox has directed the new music video for singer Foy Vance which stars her 12-year-old daughter Coco. Coco, whose father is Cox’s ex husband David Arquette, rides a bike and enjoys ice-cream in the sentimental video and she also served as the inspiration for the track.
Courteney Cox has directed the music video for Foy Vance’s ‘Coco’.
Cox met Northern Irish singer-songwriter Vance through her fiancé, Snow Patrol guitarist Johnny McDaid. Vance is currently signed to Ed Sheeran’s record label, Gingerbread Man Records, and released his third album, The Wild Swan, in May.
Speaking to People magazine Cox said: "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.”
"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.”
Vance added: "That old adage 'the apple doesn't fall far from the tree' has never proved more true than with Courteney and Coco. 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.”
Cox has previously directed episodes of her show ‘Cougar Town’ and the video for Kodaline's ‘Love Will Set You Free’. "I was thrilled when Foy asked if I would direct the video for ‘Coco.’,” Cox added. “My hope is that I conveyed in a visual way the many levels of feeling that Foy's song so brilliantly expressed."
