Five years after Warp And Weft, American singer-songwriter Laura Veirs has announced the release of a new album. The Lookout is out on April 13th via Raven Marching Band Records. “Lightning Rod” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video created by Basque artists Izar Etxeberria (illustrations) and Eñaut Uribesalgo (animation).

Etxeberria about the video: “I wanted to express the sense of wonder about the majestic mystery of life that fuels both science and art. It represents the creative process of an artist born from the need to make sense of it and to communicate the beauty and sacredness of nature, it’s fragility. It’s a poetic attempt to question our modern cosmology and values.”
