Mit „Hardline“ veröffentlicht Julien Baker die zweite Single aus ihrem kommenden Album „Little Oblivions samt liebevollem Animationsvideo.
Schon „Faith Healer“ machte uns vor ein paar Monaten klar, dass Julien Baker sich für ihr kommendes Album musikalisch breiter aufstellen würde, ihre neue Single „Hardline“ bestätigt dies nun noch einmal. Begleitet wird der neue Song aus Bakers kommendem Album von einem sehr besonderen, herzerwärmenden Video. Über ihre Vision erzählt die Künstlerin:
A few years ago I started collecting travel ephemera again with a loose idea of making a piece of art with it. I had been touring pretty consistently since 2015 and had been traveling somuch that items like plane tickets and hotel keycards didn’t have much novelty anymore. So I saved all my travel stuff and made a little collage of a house and a van out of it. I wanted to incorporate it into the record and when we were brainstorming ideas for videos we came across Joe Baughman and really liked his work so we reached out with the idea of making a stop-motion video that had similar aesthetic qualities as the house I built did. I don’t know why I have the impulse to write songs or make tiny sculptures out of plane tickets. But here it is anyway: a bunch of things I’ve collected and carried with me that I’ve re-organized into a new shape.
Video-Regisseur Josh Baughman erzählt über den Entstehungsprozess : “Man, even after having spent 600 hours immersed in ‘Hardline’ and having listened to it thousands of times, I am still moved by it. It was a fun and ambitious challenge creating something that could accompany such a compelling song. The style of the set design, inspired by a sculpture that Julien created, was especially fun to work in. I loved sifting through magazines, maps, and newspapers from the 60s and 70s and finding the right colors, shapes, and quotes to cover almost every surface in the video.”
„Little Oblivions“ erscheint am 26. Februar 2021.
