It’s worth checking out this new video from folk artist, Diane Cluck. She has just premiered the dark and beautifully shot video for “Sara” this week, following the NPR First Listen album stream premiere of Boneset (out March 4, 2014 on Important Records).
“Boneset is more in line with the excellent albums we’ve already gotten (or are soon to get) this year from Marissa Nadler, Angel Olsen, Hiss Golden Messenger, and Sun Kil Moon.” – Brooklyn Vegan
“it’s so exciting to finally have her back!” – NPR
“called Boneset, it’s typically raw and affecting, it’s grit exemplified as well as anywhere on the mournful “Sara.” – THE FADER
Diane Cluck will release her first album in nearly 8 years next week, and in anticipation, she debuts her striking new video for “Sara” via Paste Magazine. Directed by Cluck, Derrick Belcham, and choreographer Miguel Gutierrez, “Sara” manifests the amalgam of inspiration from what swiftly flowed from Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer’s church of Saint Sara, Hindu goddess Kali (the Destroyer), to Ereshkigal documented in Diane’s Song-Of-The-Week project from 2012, where you can hear an early form of “Sara.” Paste’s debut of “Sara” follows closely on the heels of NPR’s First Listen album stream premiere of Boneset yesterday, launching Diane’s US tour coming next to Los Angeles Thursday, February 27.

Boneset is Cluck’s seventh release and her first since the 2006 release of Monarcana, marking the return of the much-celebrated neo-folk artist that Devandra Banhart championed as “my favorite singer-songwriter in all of New York City.” A frequent collaborator with CocoRosie, Diane has also been cited as influencing Laura Marling, Sharon Van Etten, and Florence Welch (of Florence And The Machine).
