CeeLo Green celebrates life in the video for “Music to My Soul,” a new single off his forthcoming album Heart Blanche. Shot in New Orleans, the clip features a traditional Nola jazz band and funeral procession.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, CeeLo discussed how the video was his attempt to find beauty in rituals of death. “It’s about culture, community and commitment to the death,” he explained. “So what you see is a celebration of life in the grandest fashion like only New Orleans can bring to existence.”
“The term Heart Blanche essentially means freedom to feel and fantasize; to open wide, explore, escape, and ultimately, finding the way that works for you, even if it’s the road less traveled,” Green added.
