Dominique Fils-Aimé has shared the title track from her forthcoming record Our Roots Run Deep, due out September 22 via Ensoul Records.
The track is accompanied by another one of Fils-Aimé’s stunning music videos, this time a collaboration with Miryam Charles, known for her feature film This House which made the Toronto International Film Festival’s annual year-end ‘Canada’s Top Ten’ list for 2022. Featuring Fils-Aimé and friends against a lush, calm, green backdrop, the video visualizes the record’s plant motifs as a metaphor for community and connection.
Following her acclaimed Nameless, Stay Tuned and Three Little Words, a trilogy which conceptualized the history of African American music, Dominique Fils-Aimé marks the beginning of a new trilogy with Our Roots Run Deep. Dominique frames her latest album with a loose, dreamlike narrative structure that tells a story of growth. For Dominique, nature acts as an anchor—a source of inspiration that provides her with metaphors to express the unique but interconnected journey of a human being.
