Julia Stone Drops New Music Video for “Dance” featuring Danny Glover & Susan Sarandon
- Australian folk singer-songwriter Julia Stone has dropped a new music video for “Dance” directed by Jessie Hill.
The video stars American actors Danny Glover and Susan Sarandon.
The song was released on October 29th from her upcoming fifth studio album “Sixty Summers”.
It was written by Doveman and Julia Stone. Produced by Julia Stone, Doveman and American singer-songwriter St. Vincent.
“'Dance' was written as I thought about those very rare and often very special times when strong messages are sent and received silently between people,” Julia Stone said in a statement. “I was thinking about the moments we can share, when words are ineffective to communicate to those you love or are just unnecessary in a moment of deep connection… When there's nothing else to say or do, 'Why don't we dance'… It occurs with love and happiness but also pain and empathy. Heart, in all its appearances.”
- “After Danny said 'OK, I'm in,' he asked me, 'So who are you thinking for the leading lady?'” Jessie Hill told Rolling Stone of the video. “And I said to him, 'Who's the most incredible woman who comes to mind over 60?' He didn't skip a beat and said, Susan Sarandon! Then he spoke about their connection through politics. Both Susan and Danny had met supporting and attending Bernie Sanders rallies over the years. We spoke about some other actresses as well, but I already knew Susan was the one.”
“Particularly in this moment, I wanted to make a memorable video with a whimsical message about love,” she added. “A story reflecting the times, where more than ever we need to come together and connect. I also wanted to explore an oft-neglected demographic and reframe the way we look at age.”
