Last month, Stella Donnelly announced her second album Flood. So far we’ve heard the first single “Lungs”, and today she’s back with the title track.
“This song feels like a sad little adventure,” Donnelly said in a statement. “I wrote it from the dark depths of winter lockdown in Melbourne where it had been raining for weeks straight. Everyone around me was falling into their own version of depression at different times. It felt like a flood of traumas, but at the same time, we had the opportunity to work on things that we distracted ourselves with for so long before the pandemic.
“Flood” also comes with a video directed by Donnelly, Nick McKk and Grace Goodwin. “This clip is pure silly play, like going to your grandparents’ house where you and your cousins would embark on the most elaborate movie projects,” Donnelly said. “We always ran around the house making home movies that tried to piece together other movies and just like this clip here, they always ended in some kind of minor disaster. With this video for ‘Flood’, we made a very weak attempt to recreate OK GO’s legendary music video for ‘Here it Goes Again’ and gloriously failed. Check it out below.
Flood was released on August 26 via Secretly Canadian. Pre-order it here.
