Austin, Texas-based Lady Dan – AKA Tyler Dozier – shared her new single, ‘No Home’.
The track is the latest to be taken from her upcoming debut album, ‘I Am the Prophet’, which will be released through Earth Libraries on 23rd April.
Talking about the song, Dozier explains: “‘No Home’, is the narrative of losing every comfort that was familiar to me, all at once. Mothers, fathers, partners, homes; stripped bare. In the grief, I was able to get a clear head, and learn how to take ownership of myself.”
On the accompanying video, she explains: “This is maybe the most vulnerable song on my record and I felt like there needed to be an equally vulnerable video to match it. I’m sure you can all tell by now, that I love symbolism and reading between the lines.
“This song is about the ending of a 4.5-year abusive relationship amidst losing my dad and becoming estranged from my mom. It’s funny, I wrote the guitar for this song when I was seventeen, and I want to say it was originally supposed to be a worship song. I revisited the instrumentals a few years ago, and these lyrics came pouring out. I suppose it was something I really needed to process through music.
“In the video, I’m stripped naked (as naked as I can be without making my grandma cry) and left there in all of my discomforts. It felt important to use my friends in this video – they represent the support I found in my feminine friendships during my loss and recovery. So they’re seen redressing me and tearing the veil, so to say.
“I don’t think I’ve left much else up for debate in this song/video; it’s all very intimate and straightforward.”
