The singer-songwriter delves into her family's past on her beautiful new video.
Last month singer-songwriter Francesca Blanchard released her gorgeous album deux visions, a spellbinding bilingual blend of folk, Americana, and chanson. She's now put out a video for the touching "Now That You Are Gone", which dips into her own family's past.
"This footage is a collage of memories," Blanchard explains. "My father grew up as one of seven children. My grandfather at the time was the Vice President of Marketing for Kodak in Europe, and didn't miss an opportunity to document every moment with his own camera. This video captures nostalgia and the loss of things past…not particularly of a loved one (as the lyrics suggest) or even of a person…but rather of a time in life that we can never have again."
