Talking about the track, she says, “‘Beautiful Soul’ is a song of love and appreciation for anybody you love dearly who may be going through a shit time and needs to hear that nothing is ever permanent. As my mum always says, ‘this too shall pass’.”
Accompanied by a video created by acclaimed artist / designed Raissa Pardini, Raissa adds, “Katy’s videos are somehow connected yet very different to each other. I think you could do anything for Katy and will always look related to her music. And that’s because it’s inspiring. I started drafting things while listening to her voice and lyrics and the process just followed. It’s great when that happens because visuals are purely inspired by the music and something unique can be created. Though of course I took inspirations from somewhere. In the latest video I experimented with old 20s/30s animations made by women. The lighting, the geometrical patterns. Those are the stories that other women told us through animation before and I wanted to be inspired by them as much as possible. It’s an homage to all these animated tales and strong women.”
