Anna Burch has released a new Martin Scorsese-inspired video for ‘Tell Me What’s True’.
It’s a cut from her second album, ‘If You’re Dreaming’, which is due on 3rd April, and accompanied by a UK tour scheduled for May.
“I had been planning a sort of minimalist performance video on a Rhodes piano but didn’t have any concrete ideas,” she explains. “Then I stumbled across the 1974 Scorsese film Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore and was so entranced by this scene of her auditioning in a cowboy bar on an electric piano, and I thought it would be a really sweet homage to recreate the scene with my song. The movie is so charming and funny, and the performances are incredible—Ellen Burstyn won the Oscar for Best Actress. It’s a bit of an outlier for Scorsese, and not one of his better known, but it might be my favorite now.”
