Esperanza Spalding – Radio

Esperanza Spalding’s music video for “Radio” captures the moment you experience alone or in a packed car when a record immediately throws you into the world of the song.

Spalding depicted the inspiration behind the song as, “an experience we’ve all had at one time or another: when for whatever reason, you turn on the radio and a fragment of a song just grabs you, everything in the world seems to stop, and you sit mesmerized and uplifted by the music.”

She added: “That moment of “being touched” from the radio is a testament to the power of song, and it’s at that magical moment when an artist – even someone we know nothing about – truly connects with their equally unknown listener.”

The audio visual single was pulled from the Grammy Award winner’s upcoming album ‘Radio Music Society.’
