Celebrated singer-songwriter David Gray this month released his new album The Best Of and has just now revealed the video for his new single “Enter Lightly”.
The video features Gray painting a large canvas in the style of Jackson Pollack.
“Obviously, I used to be a painter and music and painting were two separate wings of the way my brain was lit up,” David Gray explained. “Then at a certain point I concentrated on music and I let painting and drawing go, and I don’t really know why, I’ve always felt kind of bad about it like it’s a dead friend … I’m hoping to resuscitate that friend today!”

It’s well documented how much we love English singer-songwriter Laura Marling so we jumped with joy this morning when we read that she has another album on the way.
Titled Semper Femina, the album was produced alongside US musician/producer Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes, Jim James) and is due for release on the 10th March.
“I started out writing Semper Femina as if a man was writing about a woman, and then I thought; “it’s not a man, it’s me”,” explained Marling. “I don’t need to pretend it’s a man to justify the intimacy, or the way I’m looking and feeling about women. It’s me looking specifically at women and feeling great empathy towards them, and by proxy, towards myself.”
The announcement of Semper Femina also comes with the video for the new single “Soothing” which also marks Laura Marling’s directorial debut – check it out below:
