Asa releases Satan Be Gone video
PARIS-based soul singer, Asa has released the much-anticipated video to the single ‘Satan be Gone’ of her third album, Bed of Stone. Currently on a concert tour in Europe promoting the album, Asa unveils another facet of her artistry with this new video.
Directed by filmmaker Meji Alabi, music and visuals come together to present an atmospheric ambience reminiscent of the American Deep South, as an intense Asa dances alone in a Church to bring the song’s story to life. The JM-produced track features a reverberating drumbeat and a driving guitar riff that are a perfect foil for Asa’s husky vocals, with lyrics sung in both Yoruba and English.
Released in August 2014, the singer performed songs from her third album, Bed of Stone for the first time in Nigeria at the youth event, The Future Awards Africa (TFAA), for which she received a standing ovation. She has received international acclaim for the album as well, with reviewer Anna-Bianca Krause calling the album “beautiful, sensual and mature.”
