Watch the music video for Caroline Shaw’s “Mayday Song” starring Mia Goth & Grace Van Patten
We’re thrilled to share the official music video for “Mayday Song” by Pulitzer Prize-winning vocalist, composer and producer Caroline Shaw. Composed and recorded by Shaw specifically for Karen Cinorre’s action-fantasy film Mayday, the ethereally layered piece made its debut alongside the film’s original score album by Colin Stetson earlier this month.
Director Karen Cinorre calls “Mayday Song” a “sonic wonder.” Of the song’s inspirations and unique sound, she adds, “Caroline embodies the voices of the film sirens using, as she explained to me, ‘elements of morse code messaging, fractured language, sonic lift, mysterious expanse, and strong women fighting together.’ No other composers could transport us to the world of Mayday with such artistry and generosity.”
