Six-time Juno Award winner Serena Ryder has released the video for her new single “Candy” today. The powerful video for “Candy,” directed and shot by Kayla Rocca features Tanya Howard, one of the star dancers of the National Ballet of Canada moving expressively at Toronto’s Scarborough Bluffs. The video for the song can be seen here.
“Candy” is the lead single off Serena Ryder’s upcoming album: The Art of Falling Apart. The 10-track project chronicles Serena’s years of struggle with mental health, and her journey from mental illness to wellness. The Art of Falling Apart was written and recorded over just ten days. The track listing allows the listener to follow Serena’s creative process in a truly linear sense. Each song was recorded the day it was written, featuring powerfully raw, unprocessed vocals. “Candy” is the first song on the album, through which Serena begins to open up, unravelling her upbeat, sunny edges to show a softer, more vulnerable side.
