We’re only a few days away from the release of Kaki King‘s new album, The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body. As we had previously mentioned, the album comes paired with a high-tech projection mapping show, which King has been performing throughout North America.
The guitar virtuoso had already teased the album with a live video of her performing ‘Battle is a Learning’. Now she’s offering another taste from The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body, in the form of a stunning and kaleidoscopic video for the song ‘Anthropomorph’. The video was conceived collaboratively with visual artist Shantell Martin, with both artists inspiring each other. “Music really helps give my lines and words life, and brings a natural spring to them,” said Martin. “Listening and creating live to Kaki’s piece was almost like meditating: becoming lost in the song; so full and present.” Similarly, King describes Shantell improvising to a solo guitar demo of the track. “But when I saw what she had created, I heard percussion, horns, finger snapping, and organs. So I added those instruments to the final audio track. It was a beautiful back and forth.”
Watch the video for ‘Anthropomorph’ below and watch out for the release of The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body this Tuesday March 3th via Short Stuff Records.
