Today, French multi-talented artist and Odyzey Music label head CloZee releases her new single ‘Courage’ featuring electro-R&B songstress ROZET, the second release off her forthcoming album, Microworlds, due out this summer.
Entering the second phase of Microworlds, CloZee transports fans on an intimate odyssey with ‘Courage’. A testament to her ability to craft harmonious, emotionally-evoking soundscapes, ‘Courage’ smoothly traverses with blissful synth melodies, textured basslines, and ROZET’s airy vocals. Gallantly embracing her personal vulnerabilities around her own identity, ‘Courage’ is a paragon of CloZee’s symbol as a champion for self-expression.
‘Courage’ arrives with an official music video featuring dancer Jalen Rashad. An eye-grabbing performance by Jalen, ‘Courage’ embodies what it means to be comfortable in one’s skin and the inner peace that comes with it. ‘Courage’ serves as the second in CloZee’s forthcoming three-part music video series, following ‘Microworlds’.
The track comes perfectly timed with the celebration of Pride Month. A member of the LGBTQ+ community, CloZee said, “This song and music video is about the courage to become and finally be able to express who you really are. It is about the importance of role models who give you the strength to not hide anymore, to be proud of who you are, and to be able to fully express yourself. It could be about that one encounter, or that one moment in your life that makes you finally go through the next chapter, and allows you to be you.”
Jalen commented, “The thematic beauty of this project is the portrayal of something so real. Something that many people experience and have to deal with, and the efforts of portraying that story I believe can be a breakthrough for many people.” He added, “I found it very moving being able to bring depth to ‘Courage’ through movement because from first glance you’re able to feel. Being stuck in that plastic is exactly how it feels not being comfortable in your own skin. Working through it, trying to escape, moving around trying to find where you fit in. However, you realize you don’t, which allows you to find your freedom. So when the video cuts to (my favorite scene) the open space with warm lighting. I was very stunned by the way the video shifts to such willingness to be, whatever that means for the viewer. That scene captures warmth, freedom, and peace, which is what we all want from life.”
‘Courage’ arrives following the announcement of CloZee’s massive fall headline Microworlds Tour, set to kick off on September 28th. Stream ‘Courage’ out now via Odyzey Music.
