Laura Mvula reveals 'Conditional' video

Lifted from her recently released ‘Pink Noise’ album.

Following the release of her fantastic five-star album ‘Pink Noise’, Laura Mvula is sharing the video for ‘Conditional’, taken from her ‘‘Under A Pink Moon’ livestream.

“This is the album I always wanted to make,” Laura says of the record. “Every corner is made warm with sunset tones of the 80s. I was born in 1986. I came out of the womb wearing shoulder pads. I absorbed the dynamism of the 80s aesthetic right from my first moments on this planet. Wrestling with identity seems to be one of the rites of passage of the established artist. Making ‘Pink Noise’ felt like the most violent of emotional wrestling matches. It took 3 years of waiting and waiting and fighting and dying and nothingness and then finally an explosion of sound. As if it was always here this record is my most honest and unapologetic flying of the freedom flag. In my adult years I had forgotten how important dance was to me as a vital tool of my creative expression. I brought it back, just for me, so I could find my delight in dance again. And now I can’t stop dancing. I can’t wait to play this album live.”
