Deradoorian has just premiered the live video for "A Beautiful Woman," the lead-single from her forthcoming LP, The Expanding Flower Planet. Directed and by Lonnie Francisco, the video finds Angel and sister Arlene creating the song from scratch by ways of a bass guitar, tom drum, looping pedal and a couple mics; the end result is a lovely stripped-down live rendition of the original, and a proper introduction to Deradoorian's impressive live show.
Deradoorian's forthcoming LP, The Expanding Flower Planet, is out August 21 on vinyl/CD/MP3, and available for preorder now at our webshop.
Last week we premiered “A Beautiful Woman,” the lead track from Deradoorian's forthcoming LP, The Expanding Flower Planet. We're absolutely delighted to see the huge response its received. Here are some highlights:
Pitchfork named the song Best New Track, adding that “for a song about perseverance, it’s a poignant moment, as much a proclamation of self-reliance as it is a reminder of just how missed Deeradorian’s voice has been.”
self-titled also gave their blessings to “A Beautful Woman,” choosing it as an Editor’s Pick alongside recent offerings from greats like Björk, Marilyn Manson, and Actress.
Adding to the many publications excited about Deradoorian's return, REVOLT.TV created a wonderful write-up about the lead track.
Last but not least, culture and fashion authority Vanity Fair included the track in their Best Songs of the Week round up, going as far as to suggest that the tune will “surely be soundtracking a catwalk near you soon.”
We can’t wait for everyone to hear The Expanding Flower Planet in full, when it releases worldwide August 21. In the meantime, head over to our site, here, for preorder links and more info about this amazing release.
