Anneke Van Giersbergen: premieres brand new video for 'My Mother Said'
Dutch singer Anneke van Giersbergen has premiered a new video for "My Mother Said".
The song is taken from her critically acclaimed latest album 'Drive', which was released end of September to a fantastic reception.
The video can be viewed here:
The video was directed by fellow Dutchman Raymond van Olphen, the photographer also responsible for 'The Road To Drive', an access-all-areas look at the journey she went on to craft her fifth solo studio album.
Anneke had the following to say about the video:
'This is a very personal song for me. The lyrical content is inspired by talks I had with my parents as a young adult, but it's also a ballad of parental affection. That's why we used some old 8mm footage of me as a baby and as a young child.'
Anneke and her band will embark on a European tour this fall in support of her latest album, and dates can be found below:
