[Premiere] Brooke Forman shares music video for new song 'Uncharted'—and it's epic
Brooke Forman released her music video for her new song 'Uncharted' this morning and it's absolutely brilliant. Written by Brooke herself and co-produced by Grammy Award-winning producer, Benny Reiner (Drummer of Broadway's "Hamilton"), Brooke sings and dances around a vast desert landscape with her partner—Struther White, who co-directed and choreographed the dance—as they tell a story of love.
The music video and song portrays a relationship in three parts. Starting from the evolving butterfly moments, which eventually take a turn, unraveling the deepest and most delicate pieces one can share with another. Uncharted rings true to the heart-wrenching farewell of a relationship after it leaves you standing alone. Brooke's performance is incredible, showing off the many talents Brooke has to offer.
The music video was shot and co-directed by Thor Wixom, who has been the Cinematographer/Steadicam Operator for artists such as Justin Bieber, DJ Khaled, The Chainsmokers, Kendrick Lamar, G-Eazy, Cardi B, Halsey & Kanye West.
"I wanted to try something that pushed me out of my comfort zone to make me feel vulnerable because that is the raw state of emotion that is happening in the song. For me, that was dance, something that I have never done before, but wanted to travel to a place creatively that was Uncharted territory just like the lyrics of the song. I was a bit nervous to attempt something so unfamiliar, but for me, the most important thing was not about being the best dancer, but to tell the truth of the story the song represents through movement alongside of an extremely beautiful contemporary dancer."
"I wrote this record when I was at that extreme point of vulnerability when in love. I was too afraid to say those words out loud to him so my way of communicating it was by writing this song. The lyrics "to be loyal, yet to be free" pretty much sums me up as a person. I love to love, I am extremely loyal like a lion, but in that, I need someone who trusts and understands my nomadic need to roam free. I gave him the song with handwritten lyrics on paper, put it on his bed with a pair of headphones and candles lit in the room, as my way of saying "I love you." He broke up with me the next day and although he left as my ex, I was left with the birth of this song "Uncharted". - Brooke
