Exclusive | Alela Diane reveals video for ‘The Wind’

We’re very excited to be able to bring you the beautiful new video for Alela Diane’s song ‘The Wind’.

The song, which Alela wrote after a friend of hers was tragically murdered, has an inevitable darkness that is reflected in the video, shot and directed by Jason Reid and Darren Lund.

Alela explains: “Following the incident – I had a series of dreams in which an organ was playing itself – or rather a spirit was playing it, I don’t know. Life is short and Death is a hard act to follow – that’s this song.

‘The chorus, ‘The Wind’ part was written by Tom [Bevitori, Alela’s husband] years ago, and finally found a home in the verses I wrote – a mysterious collaboration, especially given the circumstances.”

‘The Wind’ is taken from Alela’s most recent album, Alela Diane & Wild Divine.
