Andra Day lives life in a glass box for her latest visual, “Forever Mine.”
Directed by Spike Lee (who first heard Day sing at the “What Happened Miss Simone?” tribute at the Sundance Film Festival this year), the video shows Day belt out lyrics of a strengthened spiritual connection and her journey to find a timeless love while all eyes are—or aren’t—on her.
Day says her art resonates real life. “The box represents my sanctuary. When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is pray, confess and be still, so that box [is] that space where all of my creativity comes to me,” she said in a press release. “Then I see people and life through that space. I’ve learned that simplicity is a very powerful thing. You don’t need much to convey a message.”
“Forever Mine” is featured on her debut album Cheers to the Fall, which drops August 28.
