Francesca Blanchard has shared a new song and official music video directed by Josh Bernales and in partnership with Vermont-based hat company Skida. “Loon Song’ is a jubilant and catching call to embrace life’s unpredictable pathways forward. Set on a stunning lake in the Northeast, the video is a vibrant celebration of doing exactly that.
Says Francesca: “Loon Song” was inspired by a 2am loon call I heard on a camping trip earlier this summer, a sound that always seems to ground me, to fuel my gratitude for the present moment and excitement for what’s to come. Please get vaccinated :).”
