XL Recordings‘ mastermind Richard Russel announced mid of February this year the release of a collaborative album called Everything Is Recorded with artists like Damon Albarn, Sampha, Ibeyi, Giggs and Syd.
Today the video of the track “She Said” is out. The melodious pop song features the ascending 25 year old Nigerian singer and songwriter Obongjayar, who is based in London together with the great saxophonist and jazz genius Kamasi Washington. In Dear Mr Quistgaard’s video, we see Obongjayar singing, while fighting with the women’s British Olympic judo team. Washington appears at the end of the video with a saxophone interval and Russell shows up shearing a bonsai tree in a Japanese art form.
