Brother Ali just dropped the official video for “Own Light (What Hearts Are For)”. Written and directed by Dave Wilson, the stunning video delivers a powerful narrative about the beauty that surrounds us every day, amidst the struggles that divide us and simultaneously bring us together.
The track is from Brother Ali’s forthcoming album, All the Beauty in This Whole Life, set for release on May 5th.. The 15-track collection, produced entirely by Atmosphere’s Anthony “Ant” Davis, is Ali’s first official release in five years and represents the newest and most refined chapter of his life’s journey. “Every word and note of this album is intended to either reflect beauty, or expose the ugliness that blocks us from living lives of meaning,” says the Minneapolis MC.
“Beauty in all of its forms is the outward manifestation of love and virtue. It soothes the soul and pulls it gently toward the truth it communicates. Every word and note of this album is intended to either reflect beauty, or expose the ugliness that blocks us from living lives of meaning.” Contrasting intensely heavy moments with joyous and grateful ones, All the Beauty in This Whole Life arrives right on time, to help heal a divided nation through the power of music. Ali wouldn’t have it any other way. “In times of great suffering in the outside world, the most important battles start from within.”
