VALERIE JUNE PREMIERES VIDEO FOR “SHAKEDOWN”

Valerie June has shared the new video for “Shakedown” today via VEVO. The powerful, electric track comes off her highly anticipated second full-length solo album, The Order of Time, due March 10th, 2017 from Concord Records. Directed by Steven Lippman (David Bowie, Laurie Anderson), the video shows June and her band in tight formation flooded in blue and green lighting, swept up by the song’s relentless, infectious rhythm. The video is a tribute June’s father Emerson Hockett, who contributed vocals to “Shakedown” and passed away late last year. The track also features back-up vocals from June’s brothers as well as Norah Jones.

Produced by Matt Marinelli, The Order of Time includes twelve original songs that find the Tennessee-bred, Brooklyn-based songwriter weaving southern sounds, African rhythms and cosmic atmospherics into an absorbing, soulful reflection on love, family, struggle and the passing of time. The collection’s finely sketched character studies brim with richness and detail while June’s ethereal, wide-open soundscapes provide a sterling backdrop for her distinctive voice.

“Long Lonely Road” is a reflective and somber lament as June’s voice reverberates over ringing guitar and unhurried drums, whereas the entrancing blues of “If And” internalizes regret in the face of time’s relentless churn. On the spiritual “Astral Plane,” June’s mystical vocal takes an otherworldly turn; while the sumptuous string arrangement on “With You,” is reminiscent of Nico’s most affecting work.
