LeAnn Rimes Releases Powerful Music Video for “Spaceship,” Filmed by Husband Eddie Cibiran

Multi-platinum selling artist LeAnn Rimes dropped the emotional official music video for her single “Spaceship” from her newest album, God’s Work.

The raw video was spontaneously shot by Rimes’ husband Eddie Cibrian on his iPhone while on an RV trip across California. The full project was completed in four takes and under 30 minutes, beautifully capturing a vulnerable Rimes as she belts the lyrics that weigh heavy on her heart.

The bare desert backdrop and simple brown blanket covering the award-winning artist allow for no distractions as viewers are drawn in by Rimes’ gut-wrenching tears and looks of hope as she sings the powerful song.

Watch the full music video for “spaceship” below.

“The vulnerability that’s seen in the video really speaks to my own emotional connection with the song and the intention in which it was written,” said Rimes. “When we were writing and working on the track, we were still in the midst of COVID and the feelings of isolation and despair were everywhere around us. While reflecting, I realized that there’s a lot of hope that comes from letting it all out and expressing these harder emotions. I think the song gives everyone permission to take time and really just have a moment of having it out with God, so we can move past it and get back to living life.”

“We were on our way back from Mammoth when I said we should stop in Alabama Hills to scout a possible location. Once we got there and found a spot, the sun was setting and there was something magical at that exact moment. We knew we needed to capture something then. It was intimate, emotional and powerful. We only did four takes, which were a mix of sunset and sunrise to capture both sets of light. It all came together beautifully,” said Cibrian.

The video premiered on CMT to celebrate the launch, with re-airs each hour throughout the day. The project was also featured on MTV Live, MTVU, MTV Biggest Pop channels and on the Paramount Times Square Billboards in New York City.

“Spaceship” acts as the opening song of Rimes’ 19th album, setting the tone for the 12-track project by tapping into a range of emotions, encompassing grief, sadness, anger and hope. Co penned and produced by Rimes and Darrell Brown, god’s work features accomplished creators including Ziggy Marley, Mickey Guyton, Aloe Blacc, Ben Harper, Ledisi, Sheila E., Robert Randolph and Táta Vega.

“It really does take a village, a community and I am so lucky that these sweet souls helped me to create this record. You won’t find any better than this group of people! Thank you, thank you, thank you. You are all “god’s work,” Rimes captioned an Instagram post.
