Lizzo has announced a July 15th release date for her new album “Special” via Nice Life/Atlantic Records, along with the release of a brand new music video for single “About Damn Time.”
Lizzo teased “About Damn Time” on Instagram a few days ago, calling it “the song of the summer” — a statement that rings true with the singer tapping into the colorful rhythms and melodies of disco.
The news of the album’s release date was shared with a look at the album’s black-and-white cover art which features Lizzo in an armor-inspired headpiece.
The Christian Breslauer-directed video starts off during a “Stressed and Sexy” support group seminar which Lizzo exits, only to immediately start popping and locking down the hallway. The groovy bassline of the track leads her to look into a mirror where she tunes into her glittery alter ego, who takes over for the remainder of the video.
