Conscious singer and Eminem collaborator Jessie Reyez has just unleashed her provocative new video “Far Away.”
Directed by Peter Huang, the track will appear on her upcoming debut studio album, set for a 2020 release.
“Attachment to someone is both something beautiful and something painful,” Reyez says of the song’s roots. “Imagine finally finding your home in another human being but they’re stuck on the other side of this rock we’re all on. You’re left wanting nothing more than a hug -their hug- that simultaneously feels like a pillow and a drug. Somehow when they hurt, you hurt, when they smile, you smile. This is love suspended in animation, before it’s tainted by reality (because eventually all hearts break again) but in this moment, neither of you are running from one another—it’s only water and borders and God keeping you apart. Water and borders and God keeping you from home. This is pre-heart break; when both sets of lungs are still working and when you miss them and they miss you back- and you feel each other even when you’re far away.”
