“WINTER DAWN” VIDEO BY CONNOR BURKE + LISBON AND MUNICH + SAM PREKOP AND SHANE PARISH!

October 10, 2017 § Leave a comment

I’m soooo thrilled to introduce the second excerpt from the new album with this stunning video that young film maker (and freestyle skateboarding world champion – I’m not kidding!!!) Connor Burke has made for “Winter dawn”. This is truly one of my favorite music videos ever, and I’m not talking about videos made for my own music: I mean that if this had been created for another musician, I would have been in awe! I hope you will love the poetical and powerful world Connor Burke has created as much the song itself.

If you’re curious about Connor’s process, here are his own words about the video: “Utilizing a mixture of specialized acrylics, silicone, and painting medium, I poured nearly seventy cups of the mixture onto canvases and filmed the interactions from above with a macro lens.  The acrylics underwent a simple chemical reaction as the medium isolated the colors from one another.”

The song is also available on my Bandcamp and on Spotify, and I’d like to share the lyrics with you:

The world had nearly ended yet the sky was blue
And I came home with a fistful of fear

O dear soul, flesh and bones
Love alone is your home

Deep and warm, golden dawn
Shine some more of that light of yours
Deep and warm, golden dawn
Give me more of that light of yours

On the European live front, I’m playing in my beloved ZDB in Lisbon on 7th December, and at the Notwist-curated Alien Disko festival in Munich on 16th December! And on the US side, I got the amazing news this week that Sam Prekop of The Sea and Cake will open  for my show at the MCA in Chicago on 3rd November – so honoured and excited at the thought of that evening in Thrill Jockey’s adopted home! And guitarist extraordinaire Shane Parish will open in Asheville on 14th November!

As always thanks for your support, and stay tuned this week because the album’s premiere is finally happening!
