Jasamine White-Gluz has announced a new EP as No Joy called Can My Daughter See Me From Heaven, which will be made up of orchestral reimaginings of tracks from her 2020 album, Motherhood. To preview the collection, No Joy has shared a video for “Kidder (From Heaven),” a reworked version of “Kidder.”
“Kidder (From Heaven)” is a stunning, dreamy rework that truly lets the album track be seen in a new light. The accompanying video, which is directed by a 7-year-old named Sloan, sees Sloan wanting “to imitate the sparkliness of a dream.”
“For me, ‘Kidder’ evokes duality; youth & aging, happy & sad, bright & dark. I’ve sat with this song for such a long time that for this video I wanted to give full creative control over to someone else to see what imagery the music evoked for them. I couldn’t think of anyone better suited than Sloan- her mind works in wondrous ways and it was an honor to soundtrack her vision.”
Watch the video for “Kidder (From Heaven)” below.
Can My Daughter See Me From Heaven, which is set for release on May 19th via Hand Drawn Dracula and Joyful Noise, will see White-Gluz transforming five Motherhood tracks with an opera singer, a cellist, a harpist, and a French horn musician.
“Songs take on a new life when I’m on tour. These songs didn’t get that chance. I still had more to say with them,” White-Gluz explains.
