Keeley Forsyth has previewed her upcoming album Limbs with a new single called ‘I Stand Alone’. Following the previously released song ‘Bring Me Water’, the new track arrives today alongside a music video produced in collaboration with Ross Downes and Neil Cain. Check it out below.
“The song uses words as murmurs in a moment of realisation,” Forsyth explained in a press statement. “Strengthening autonomy and protecting human dignity, even at its most dark and surreal. It’s a survival song in essence.”
She added: “We shot the video over two bitterly cold countryside days. We took influence from the cinematic traditions of folkloric horror and British rural gothic, as well as respectfully referencing Carl Dreyer’s classic The Passion Of Joan Of Arc, where the concentration and focus is on the main protagonist’s face and expressions, shot in intimate close-ups. We were keen to capture the absurdist aspect of the character ignoring her predicament, and staying committed to her own ‘truth’, in spite of what society may throw at her.”
Limbs is slated for release on February 25 via The Leaf Label.
