Dawn Richard Bussifame Video
This song is taken from her first LP for Merge Records, titled “Second Line: An Electro Revival”, and would be out on the 30th of April, 2021.
The official music video was directed by Richard herself. In a press release, Richard called Second Line “a movement to bring pioneering Black women in electronic music to the forefront.”
The record, according to the press release, follows Richard’s persona as King Creole, an “assassin of stereotypes, a Black girl from the South at a crossroads in her artistic career.”
Regarding the album title, Richard said, “The definition of a second line in New Orleans is a celebration of someone’s homecoming.” She continued
“In death and in life, we celebrate the impact of a person’s legacy through dance and music. I’m celebrating the death of old views in the industry. The death of boxes and limits. I’m celebrating the homecoming of the Future. The homecoming to the new wave of artists. The emergence of all the King Creoles to come. This is our revival.”
