Anna Akana Premieres Debut Song “Intervention” on Billboard
- American actress Anna Akana premiered her debut song “Intervention” along with the music video on exclusively Billboard.
The song will appear on her debut album “Casualty” and the video was directed by Auden Bui.
The track drew her struggles with addiction. She told Billboard about the song. “We talk about addiction a lot, but they've done a lot of studies which say that most addiction comes from a sense of isolation, of not being connected,” she explained. “People turn to drugs because they don't have a support system in place. I used alcohol as a huge crutch. I got into drinking when I first got to L.A. I had no friends, I was 21, and I would often drink by myself to have fun. I started meeting other people who liked to drink all the time like me, and then my habit skyrocketed into an actual problem. Once I got sober I lost a big portion of my friend group. I think tons of people are dealing with addiction, whether that’s addiction to drugs, sex, alcohol, or even to your phone. Addiction to phones can cause an inability to stay present, much in the way drugs and alcohol can.”
- Anna Akana will perform live at Moroccan Lounge on July 24th. Later this year she is also set to support Vivica A. Fox and Brittany Snow in the upcoming indie film "Bailey and Darla".
