Katie Melua Shares Video For “Your Longing Is Gone” From Forthcoming Record ‘Album No.8’ out 10/16 on BMG

Last week, following its world exclusive play on Jo Whiley’s BBC Radio 2 show, Katie Melua released “Your Longing Is Gone” from the forthcoming Album No. 8 – due for release on October 16th via BMG. Featuring the Georgian Philharmonic Orchestra and beautifully arranged and produced by Leo Abrahams, the song is an aching requiem to a fading romance.  

Katie Melua said of the song, “As a female artist who has sung about love and desire, I was interested in exploring how to handle the fading of love and the waning of that desire. It happens in real life, and there are nuances involved and those nuances in real life are of great importance” Melua explains. “In both the writing and the record making we have tried to capture that reality, painted with acceptance and a celebration of the good times.”

The single is accompanied by a strikingly picturesque video that was filmed near the coastal resort of Batumi in Georgia, the location of Melua’s childhood holidays. “I wanted to work with the Georgian photographer/videographer Mariam Sitchinava who is able to capture women on camera looking genuinely beautiful and real, without any mannerisms or exaggerations.”
