My Brightest Diamond, aka Shara Worden, has unveiled the video for ‘This is my Hand’ (Groundlift Remix).
The track can be found on her forthcoming EP I Had Grown Wild, out on May 19 via Paper Bag Records in Canada.
“What is interesting about any remix is that by changing the instruments, and even the language, the meaning of the song takes on a multi-dimensional aspect, like staring at an object from a different angle, you see it in a new way,” Worden said in a statement. “The form has not changed but the environment, the dressings, the costumery has altered your perception of it’s meaning. To sing ‘This Is My Hand,’ a song about the embracing of one’s own body, means something different in this time in history when there have been so many recent tragedies, where innocent people have had their lives taken from them in acts of violence and racism in both America and France. Today this is not only a song of self-embrace, but also one about the inherent right of all people to maintain freedom in their own bodies.”
