Two years after the first full-length Birthplace, Welsh singer-songwriter Novo Amor (aka Ali Lacey) has announced the release of a new album. Cannot Be, Whatsoever is out on November 6th. We already shared “Opaline”; “If We’re Being Honest” is a new excerpt and comes with the official video directed by Charlie Reader who explained:

“I wanted to create a simple but powerful story that feels entirely timeless yet is also attuned to the strange situation the world finds itself in now with the global pandemic: the emotional complexities of living in isolation and being detached from loved ones. An astronaut returning from space after many years seemed to perfectly encapsulate those ideas, and the crash-landing felt fitting in its requirement for strength and resolve to make it through. I think it’s a universal story for any struggle and I wanted it to ultimately feel optimistic; projecting a message of hope, resilience and reunification.”
