NUDE’S lovely singer-songwriter Juanita Stein has released a video for her new single, “Lucky”, which visuals which we gladly present for you here today.
It’s taken from her latest album, last October’s Snapshot, and it’s a timeless, folksy strum, propelling along on a canter of acoustic chords, Juanita simmering with a feeling of perhaps not quite being so lucky as she’s being told in the wake of her father’s death, proud and more than a little shocked and angry at the projected assumption.
Juanita takes a couplet from the song as the starting point to talk through a dark time: “’I feel the fire, I feel the change.’
“‘Lucky’ is the first song I wrote for this album. It came tumbling out of me the week my father was admitted to hospital,” she says.
“It signalled the profound shifts in reality and the revelation that only love and encouragement would see us all through the challenges ahead.
“The video sees me contemplating my reality whilst driving aimlessly around the open and spacious South Downs in Sussex, not far from where I live.
“Driving alone has always been a cathartic experience for me, moving freely through the world, nothing but my thoughts and the breeze flowing through my hands.”
