Natalie Prass released a new album, The Future and the Past, last month via ATO (it was our Album of the Week). Now she has shared a new video where she performs “Lost” with a paired down orchestra or large string section at Montrose Recording, a studio in her native Richmond, Virginia. Prass plays piano and sings and is accompanied by some backing singers as well. Watch it below, followed by her upcoming tour dates.

Previously she shared a video for The Future and the Past‘s first single, “Short Court Style” (which was one of our Songs of the Week), and also performed the song on Conan. Then she shared the album’s second single, “Sisters,” which a press release called a “feminist anthem.” “Sisters” was our #1 Song of the Week. Then she shared “Lost,” which was also one of our Songs of the Week.

The Richmond based singer/songwriter released her acclaimed self-titled debut album in 2015 via Spacebomb/StarTime International. She had a new album written and was ready to record it when Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential election, which led to Prass rewriting the album. As a previous press release put it: “Out of her despair and disappointment in those results came an impulse she could not ignore: she rewrote the album to reflect these swirling emotions.” The press release also called the album “a stunning snapshot of a musician in a state of personal rediscovery and surging femininity. The celebratory and defiant The Future and the Past also signals a significant artistic leap for Prass on the heels of her 2015 breakthrough debut album. It finds Prass tapping into deep, dancey grooves that glisten with ‘80s pop and ‘90s R&B, nestled alongside quivering, lushly orchestrated ballads.”

As with her debut album, The Future and the Past was recorded in Richmond, VA with long-time friend and collaborator Matthew E. White at his Spacebomb Studios.

Prass had this to say about the album in the previous press release: “The record was ready to go, and then the election happened. I was devastated. It made me question what it means to be a woman in America, whether any of the things I thought were getting better were actually improving, who I am and what I believe in. I knew I would be so upset with myself if I didn’t take the opportunity to say some of the things that meant so much to me, so I decided to rewrite the record. I needed to make an album that was going to get me out of my funk, one that would hopefully lift other people out of theirs, too, because that’s what music is all about.”
