Buffy Sainte-Marie "Power in the Blood" (video)
Published Jun 18, 2015Folk septuagenarian Buffy Sainte-Marie returned this spring with her album Power in the Blood (out now on True North Records), and having recently participated in an Exclaim! Questionnaire, she has now rolled out a politically-charged video for the collection's title track.
The track is a urgent electro banger that was made with Alabama 3 (who wrote the original version of the song), and the this provides the thumping soundtrack for a video that documents political protests. Through a combination of DIY footage, computer-generated graphics and informative facts, the video touches on topics like genetically modified foods, war and Wall Street greed.
The clip was conceived by Gabriel Constant. Watch it below [via Billboard], and be sure to read the singer's interview with Exclaim! right here.
