Folk Rock/Americana singer-songwriter Braison Cyrus has revealed the video for “Heart Is Gold,” his new single on Nashville-based independent label, Sunday Supper Records (distributed by The Orchard).
The video begins as a crescent moon unfolds into a “living” version of Cyrus’ cover art – a golden orb and a hinged-together horse with a Rorschach-esque mane & tail. The horse is original artwork by Salt Lake City-based artist, Rob France, and animated to travel vast, finger-painted landscapes by video creator, Gabriel Judet-Weinshel.
“Heart Is Gold” echoes with a celestial shimmer as Cyrus’ layered vocals evoke a divine choir guiding a solitary search. It was written by Braison Cyrus, Jesse Baker, and Bill Reynolds, who also produced the track. The song is the follow-up to Cyrus’ 2018 single, “I’ll Never Leave You” (1.2 million streams on Spotify) and a precursor to his interpretation of Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land,” which closes the upcoming Patagonia documentary, Public Trust: The Fight For America’s Public Land.
Public Trust is out Friday (9/25). It was directed by David Garret Byars and executive-produced by Robert Redford and Yvon Choinard.
