“Every Night I Say A Prayer” is a track from Little Boots‘ upcoming album, released in conjunction with the “Record Store Day” in a one-off limited edition vinyl and now available as a free download. The track was written and produced by Andy Butler (Hercules & Love Affair) and Little Boots, you can download the song on our last Music Ticker from Sunday (just scroll down a bit, it’s the fourth Soundcloud wave).
The video was directed by artist Zaiba Jabbar, who writes the following about the it on her blog:
“Initially inspired by Paris is Burning we wanted to draw on the performance element and make a more london, and abstract version. In this realm we wanted to create a more conceptual take on a music video. Moving into more of a dance:performance video.”
So it seems like 20 years after Madonna’s take on the NYC ballroom culture and after artists such as Hercules & Love Affair’s Kim Ann Foxman, The Miracles Club and others have prepared its comeback visually and musically (see “Creature” / ”Light Of Love”) during the past two years, voguing has now officially diffused into the white mainstream culture again. Is that a good thing? I put this up for discussion.
