Alicia Keys forgoes the traditional music video release in favour of a visual sonic installation.
That is what the singer and Sony Music are calling her new visuals for “Show Me Love” featuring Miguel.
The “visual sonic experience” features three scenes shot in the same wide-angle perspective: one with Keys and Miguel, one with Michael B. Jordan and one with Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego Saldana. Each scene was shot in just seven seconds.
“I have been on this journey to be more vulnerable; in my life, in my music; and this new visual experience reflects this time,” Keys said in a statement. “Show me loves displays different expressions of love, the journey of it, the push and pull, the struggle and the eventual joy and peace.”
The installation was directed by Cara Stricker and debuted at the Dolby SoHo in New York City on Wednesday night. The installation is available for public viewing until Sunday, Sept. 22.
“Show Me Love” is the first release from Keys’ impending seventh studio album.
