Today, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, composer, and violinist Lili Haydn shared the title track from her upcoming album More Love, along with an accompanying music video. More Love will be released on March 26 on Lakeshore Records. She invites us to say “Sayonara” to the drama and puts out “More Love” into the world today. Learn more about the genesis of Lili’s forthcoming MORE LOVE album below.
“More love, more light, Darkness don’t stand a chance against us, she sings in the black and white music video for the track… Haydn channels her gratitude for life as the song builds to an emotional crescendo. ” – American Songwriter
Ahead of Lili Haydn’s forthcoming album release, MORE LOVE (out March 26 on Lakeshore Records), we are treated to a music video premiere of her song, also titled “More Love.” Watch the full video at American Songwriter now. The single will be released March 5 before the full album if you can’t wait to own it! See the album tracklist and pre-save links below.
And while the ominous but optimistic track showcases Lili’s plaintive vocals and exhilarating violin playing over a sultry trip-hop beat, we were especially taken with the accompanying video. In it, artist Norton Wisdom is seen painting a portrait inspired – of course – by the song, but in time lapse (because, obviously, no one can actually paint that fast). – BlackBook
Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, composer, and violinist Lili Haydn shares her new single “Sayonara,” a song calling for love and change in the United States as Inauguration Day for the Biden-Harris administration approaches. She’s also shared the video for the song featuring a time-lapse video of artist Norton Wisdom painting live to the music. The song is the first to be shared from Haydn’s forthcoming album More Lovewhich is due this Spring on Lakeshore Records.
“I’ve howled so many times over the last 4 years (and indeed before that) ‘enough is enough…’ of the suffering and dogma and endless war and brutality,” says Haydn. “This song is my throwing down the gauntlet to the systems of oppression, starting with my own participation… ‘I’m laying down my arms today. Not another in my name.’ It seemed especially relevant and even celebratory to release it right before the inauguration.”
