Single Release | Visions
“Visions is the greasiest track on the album,” says David Ward about his new single from the album Violet, Gold + Rose.
“It’s sexy, funky, slick. Greasy is easier to hear than it is to describe,” Ward says with a laugh.
“The song is about the collision between sex and God, sin and virtue, and what obsession can conjure when it weaves its way into it all.”
Ward is in pre-production for a music video that medleys two singles from Violet, Gold + Rose: Visions and Jesus Hollywood. Working with Becky Izad and Elwin Alpuerto, captains of the acclaimed Vancouver urban dance crew, TwFrSvn, Visions is a future-noir, dance-based film short: an edgy take on MGM’s Golden Age of Musicals. He is also teaming up with lighting designer Robert Sondergaard to create surrealistic and malleable worlds for the piece. Sondergaard is a frequent collaborator with Crystal Pite (Kidd Pivot) and worked on one of Ward’s favourite pieces, the critically acclaimed The Tempest Replica.
Ward will be touring Europe, the UK and Canada this fall in support of the release of Violet, Gold + Rose October 12th. You can see early dates at his website, davidwardmusic.com.
