Anna Of The North Premieres New Music Video for “Leaning On Myself”
- Oslo-based Norwegian singer-songwriter Anna Lotterud, aka Anna of the North has shared a new music video for “Leaning On Myself” directed by Noah Lee.
Last November, she released "Nothing Compares 2 U" since 2017's her debut EP "Lovers". The new song is the follow-up to it.
The video sets in the desert, and features Anna with both angel wings and elf ears.
“I've been writing a lot of music the past year. ‘Leaning On Myself' is one of the songs that came out of it, maybe one of my favourite songs. I remember flying home from the States where we wrote it and I started crying,” Anna Lotterud said of the song. “I kind of realized I’d written the soundtrack of my life one year ago. There was a point in where I went through a lot of shit and I wasn’t feeling very well.”
- “I had one big breakdown where I called my mom and just knew I had to change my ways,” she said. “I had to cut some people out of my life, people I loved but I knew weren’t really good for me. It was tough. But I’m good now. Every time I listen to this song it takes me back to that moment. It’s fucking sad but also powerful. I’m very grateful for where I am today. In the end you only have yourself, you know, and I guess that’s ok.”
"I met Noah Lee who directed the video and love his previous work,” she added. “I’d always wanted to have elf ears and wings...next thing you know it became reality.”
