On 11 September 2012 Tulisa revealed that her new single would be a "Christmassy ballad" that would "stand the test of time", without revealing the track's title.[1] Ater the announcement, she visited the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, where she performed an album track which was also a ballad called "Skeletons". Due to this, it was assumed that "Skeletons" was the song that Tulisa was describing. However, on 8 October 2012, press images captured on the set of her new music video confirmed the title of the single to be "Sight of You" and not "Skeletons". This was confirmed by Tulisa herself when she invited the contestants from her category on The X Factor to join her at the video shoot, and behind the scenes footage of the video was featured on the show. Shortly after, on 21 October 2012, the full official music video premiered via Tulisa's official VEVO account on YouTube.[2] The video features Tulisa standing on a bridge with a city view, performing the song whilst traffic flows beneath her. Other scenes include a heatbreaking relationship between Tulisa and her boyfriend, played by her short-term real life boyfriend Jody Latham.
