Singer songwriter Nahko is set to release the official music video for his track, ‘Dragonfly’ next week. The song is the first single from his upcoming debut solo album, ‘My Name Is Bear’, and the video features his close friend, Paris Jackson.
In anticipation of the video, Nahko has released an intimate behind-the-scenes look at its making, showing the friendship between him and Paris, and their spiritual bond.
“I specifically wanted to capture this young woman’s natural beauty and focus on what I thought would be a very perfect song to explain a transformational time that fit both her and I.”
“We’re going through very similar things right now, each in our own way, but they both kind of fit the same template and there’s just a flow. It’s really rare to find that mutual frequency with another human being. When it does happen it’s pretty spectacular.”
Nahko’s debut solo album, ‘My Name Is Bear’, is out on Friday October 20, and is a 16 track collection reflecting the authenticity and spirit of the singer, whose fans have come to know and love through his work with world music collective, Medicine For The People. In effect, ‘My Name Is Bear’ serves as a prequel, which artfully merges rustic acoustic guitars, upbeat energy, tribal flavours, fiery percussion, and ponderous lyrics.
Nahko will be setting off next month on a full US and European headline tour, commencing October 18 in Boston. You can catch him in the UK at the following:
DEC 1st – London, Islington Assembly Hall,
DEC 2nd – Bristol, The Fleece
Prior to the start of his tour, Nahko will be coming to the UK on Monday 25 September for a promotional visit and a very exclusive performance.
