Lydia Loveless today released her new physically animated video for “Say My Name,” a slow burning standout off her acclaimed new album Daughter. “My band is all strangely obsessed with puppets—we’ve been talking about making our own and doing a show for years but we aren’t exactly a craft circle,” Loveless explains. “So Michael Casey made this shadow puppet theatre all on his own in a surprisingly short time, as a sort of tribute to our love for the art. I think it has just the right amount of quirky sadness for the song.”
The “Say My Name” video arrives just ahead of a socially distanced outdoor concert in her adopted home state of NC this Saturday, October 24th, for Live In the Lot! at Durham’s Motorco Music Hall. Tickets for a pod of 6 are available to purchase HERE (single ticket purchases are unavailable due to Covid restrictions).
Daughter marks the triumphant return of Loveless, and documents a period of personal upheaval, including a divorce and an interstate move away from her longtime home. Left feeling unmoored and adrift, she worked to redefine herself, both in her own mind and within the context of the world. Written with her characteristic candidness and razor-sharp wit, and brimming with revelatory new ideas, sounds, and directions, the album is a self-aware journey into independence.
