Dawn Richard shared a new music video for a song from her new album Second Line. The visual for “Mornin | Streetlights ”was filmed in a park in New Orleans. Watch it below.
“A major theme of Second Line is my desire to show New Orleans in a way that is not necessarily seen,” Richard said in a statement. “I grew up in City Park, just around the corner from my mother’s dance school; All pictures of the school concert show the park in the background. I think City Park has this traditional beauty, but also a seductive, haunting touch that makes it local. I wanted to marry them both with this visual, similar to merging ‘Mornin’ with ‘Streetlights’. “
