Following a less-than-friendly disbanding of the Civil Wars last year, the duo's Joy Williams is moving on with a new solo record titled Venus. We've already heard the lead single "Woman (Oh Mama)," and now the futuristic soul-folk ballad has received some matching visuals.
The video features a lot of interpretive dancing, but not so much clothing. Williams stars in the clip, which sees her delivering the dance moves in evening wear, then in the nude, and then as a CGI ball of flames. It's a striking, dramatic accompaniment to the empowering, tribal-sounding tune.
Venus is due out this summer via Columbia. Watch the video for "Woman (Oh Mama)" below.
