GRAMMY-nominated, platinum-selling artist, prolific songwriter and spellbinding live performer Sophie B. Hawkins has released the official video for her brand-new single “Love Yourself.” PRESS HERE to watch the stunning visual shot at the former brothel, Best Little Boarding House in the old mining town of Victor, Colorado. Sophie teamed up with Nigel Dick, who is known for his work directing some of the most iconic music videos of the 90s including Britney Spears’ “Baby One More Time” and “Oops I Did It Again,” Celine Dion’s “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now” and “Wonderwall” by Oasis, and the result is pure Sophie.
“Sophie told me she was a ‘pick-up truck kind of girl,’ and suddenly the charming-yet-gritty Victor, Colorado seemed like the perfect location to shoot the video,” said Nigel, “It’s always an honor to work with people who have some history so you can have a conversation about their career between shots. The thing that came across on that day we worked together is that Sophie seems very comfortable in her skin and she essentially embodies the meaning of the song.”
“‘Love Yourself’ is an opportunity in every moment to create a positive feeling, a happy feeling about oneself and one’s life path – no matter what – it’s a choice, and a power,” said Sophie. “Loving myself is a superpower.”
Rooted in her raw yet poetic lyrics and effortlessly captivating vocals, “Love Yourself” is a soul-stirring piece of symphonic pop about self-love and the way we talk to ourselves, re-framing our inner dialogue to change patterns and bring healing. Sophie will be rolling out more new music, culminating in an album next year. It’s an exciting new creative chapter for the legendary artist whose indelible hit songs such as “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover” and “As I Lay Me Down” have been featured in cultural touchstone TV shows and films (from recent hits Stranger Things, Euphoria, Ozark, and PEN15, to landmark series Beverly Hills, 90210, Dawson’s Creek, The L Word and more).Sophie has always been ahead of her time with her steadfast activism in support of environmental protection, animal rights and LGBTQ equality using her songwriting and platform for positive change with the forward-thinking, pioneering outlook she has championed throughout her trailblazing career.
Known for her captivating live shows that erase the divide between audience and performer, Sophie is currently on the road celebrating her new music and the 30th Anniversary of her iconic, critically-acclaimed, platinum-selling debut album Tongues and Tails. She’ll also be joining Paula Cole on select dates – remaining dates can be found below (with more to be announced soon). PRESS HERE for tickets and more information.
Sophie’s ever-evolving career has also included releasing six widely beloved albums, breaking chart records with her smash hits, four worldwide singles from Whaler and a starring role as Janis Joplin in the critically acclaimed musical Room105.
A dynamic creative force, Sophie has always been fully involved in every aspect of the production of her records, from background vocals, playing multiple instruments, to engineering and production. She has proved to be an enduring artist with a fierce commitment to artistic integrity while simultaneously evolving while remaining steadfastly true to her authentic history and experience which connects her to her fans at the very deepest levels.
