This song was written in the middle of the 2020 Covid pandemic lockdown. I was sitting with my ukulele in a stream of winter sun, thinking about a friend who was going through personal tragedy whilst also being isolated in lockdown. The warmth of the sun reminded me of friendship and how people can provide that same goodness to each other when times are tough. Right now the world has many devastating things going on, horrible war, intense natural disasters cause by climate change… The darkness is overwhelming, but we need to find room for hope. I hope we can all let rays of gentle sunshine in.
Lots of love to you all, thanks for listening. xxLenka
Check out the video for Ivory Tower, co-directed by Lenka and Mitch Hertz.
This video was shot “selfie-style” in Lenka’s daughter’s bedroom, on a iPhone, with lights, costumes and wigs from the dress-up box. The footage was then animated by Mitch Hertz into a vintage-MTV-Monty Python-esque paper art world of revolving towers where she exists, oblivious and entitled; the princess in the Ivory Tower.
