Today, Karen Elson releases the video for her new single, “Call Your Name,” directed by Elson and the photographer/director Jo McCaughey. The single is the first to be taken from English-born, Nashville based Elson’s upcoming second album, Double Roses, which is set for release on 1965 Records (PIAS) on April 7th.
“Call Your Name” is, as Elson says, “A song about the many sides of myself battling to become one. With the video, I wanted to use simple metaphors of deep dark water and mirrors to literally reflect the song’s meaning of inner conflict, who I am behind the mirror?”
Elson is performing at SXSW this week. She also has live dates in Nashville and Brooklyn. All tour dates below.
The video for “Call Your Name” was filmed in Florida in February, with Elson and McCaughey collaborating on this ocean-set film.
