A few photos from the set of the music video, which is expected to be released soon, can be seen below.
Commented singer Elin Larsson: “This is the only ballad we have on our up coming record. This song is the most personal song I’ve ever written. that’s why it’s so striped down on instruments. I want the listener to make up their own mind about it just like our producer of the video made up his. Mine will be a secret. Sometimes we get to make hard decisions that we are to young to actually decide on, we deal with guilt and sadness and regrets. This is my photograph of a memory that I will always have to deal with. And I don’t want to forget it. The video is an artistic video that shows a person struggle with her past and letting go, she releases it to find herself back where she started. The ghost of her past … she becomes a ghost of her presence.”

Recently, the band had released the official music video for the brand new first single and title track of their upcoming second album. The video was directed by Johan Bååth (AVATARIUM, DREGEN) who is best known for his work with cult director Jonas Åkerlund (THE ROLLING STONES, U2,MADONNA, OZZY OSBOURNE, METALLICA) and shot by well known BACKYARD BABIES drummer Peder Carlsson.

“We shot the video for ‘Lady in Gold‘ in Stockholms skärgård (what is like an old castle) with the amazing team around Johan Bååth,” commented singer Elin Larsson. “The idea behind the video is to visualize the ‘Lady in Gold’ in all the different ways she can come. She can be that beautiful young woman or a scary old witch. It was a lot of fun and super exciting to jump into these different roles and characters. The whole team did a great job and it was a pleasure to work with all these talented people. Clothes and design was made by Anna Bonnevier and make up and hair by Cecilia Lidén. We all hope you will enjoy the video.”

– CD-DIGI+PICTURE DISC

Just as it’s highly successful predecessor, Lady In Gold was once again produced by Don Alsterberg (GRAVEYARD, DIVISION OF LAURA LEE, JOSÉ GONZÁLEZ, JERRY WILLIAMS). The cover art for Lady In Gold was created by Marijke Koger-Dunham (THE BEATLES, CREAM).
Bassist, founding member and main songwriter Zach Anderson comments: “The design comes from the dutch artist Marijke Koger-Dunham who already worked with us for the first album cover. We are super proud to have the opportunity to work with such a legendary artist who has even worked with THE BEATLES, CREAM and many more. The original design was made by her 50 years ago. We worked together to adapt the colors to fit the mood of the album. Hopefully our fans will like it as much as we do.”
Commented singer Elin Larsson on the choice of the album’s title: “Lady gold is a character who symbolizes death. We wanted a twist on the typical stereotype of death being the grim reaper. So instead we made her a lady in gold.”
