Sinead Harnett has shared a laid-back visual for “Take Me Away,” her latest single featuring Atlanta rap duo EarthGang.
In the Andre Muir-directed clip, Harnett and EarthGang’s Olu chill out on long road trips and sunlit balconies, in between performing their latest collaboration with their friends grooving around them.
“With your arms surrounding me / ’Cause, baby, your love, it comes for free / Let’s hop in the car, I want to find some inner peace / Take me away,” sings Harnett on the track. Later in the track, Olu drops in to spit some relatable bars: “Times like these I need some top-down-in-the-breeze / Times like these you and I both need a release.”
“This year taught us more than we maybe knew was fathomable. It taught me how messed up the world really is,” said Harnett in a press release. “But it taught me about what truly matters. Equality, love, peace, and hope. This video was a chance to illustrate escapism, to empower, to feel free.”
“Take Me Away” is set to appear on Harnett’s as-yet-untitled forthcoming sophomore album, alongside “Stickin’” featuring VanJess and Masego which dropped in September. The record will be a follow-up to her 2019 debut album Lessons in Love.
EarthGang have had a busy year as well: they appeared on Tobe Nwigwe’s “Wildlings” alongside Duckwrth as well as TOKiMONSTA’s “Fried for the Night,” on top of remixing Brittany Howard’s “Goat Head” and Madeon’s “No Faith No More.” They also released “Still Up” and “Swivel” with Dreamville, a cover of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On,” and a video for “Top Down” off their 2019 album Mirrorland.
