PREMIERE | Billie Black Releases 'The Last Time'
The singer's latest video alternately evokes Bessie Smith and Vogue-era Madonna.
Following the release of her three-track EP The Last Time earlier this month, Billie Black has unveiled the video for its title track.
Cutting between black-and-white footage of Black singing alone in the spotlight on a smokey stage and dancing, awash in muted tones in front of a satin curtain, the video alternately evokes Bessie Smith and Vogue-era Madonna. It's a fitting pastiche for an artist who regularly combines jazz, R&B, and electronica.
