Everything Is Recorded releases a brand new video for ‘She Said (featuring Obongjayar and Kamasi Washington)’, from the debut album Everything Is Recorded by Richard Russell, released earlier this year. Watch below!
Directed by Dear Mr Quistgaard, the video sees appearances from the enigmatic Nigerian-born, London-based artist Obongjayar and Richard Russell himself, alongside the British Olympic judo team.
Speaking about the video, Richard Russell says:
“I first heard Steven (Obongjayar) via a demo he put up on Soundcloud while I was recording my album. At that time he was based in East Anglia. I invited him to a session at my place in west London and asked Damon in to play keys … the whole thing just clicked and we recorded “She Said” in 3 hours.
Obongjayar is just such a positive force. At the point we recorded the song he had no studio experience but he had great energy and instincts, the song was written and recorded spontaneously, then and there.
Making the video was a blast, Steven got beaten up by some badass female martial artists, and I got to use my bonsai skills.”
Everything Is Recorded is the collaborative artist project helmed by musician, record producer and XL Recordings co-founder Richard Russell, his debut album was recorded at Russell’s Copper House studio in London, featuring an eclectic international and inter-generational cast of collaborators and musicians including vocalists Sampha, Giggs, Ibeyi, Obongjayar, Infinite, Wiki and Syd alongside instrumental contributions from Kamasi Washington, Damon Albarn, Rachel Zeffira, Peter Gabriel, Green Gartside, Owen Pallett and more.
