Rising singer-songwriter Saleka has released the emotive new music video for her track, “The Sky Cries,” which appears in season two, episode eight of the hit the Apple Original series, “Servant” and is available digitally everywhere.
Directed by M. Night Shyamalan – celebrated auteur and filmmaker, and executive producer of “Servant” – “The Sky Cries” finds the singer haunting and dancing through the halls of the Turners’ home as members of her band play beside her. “This was the fourth video Saleka has made and she was so confident in her performance that I treated her like I would a normal actress,” Shyamalan says.
Speaking on the visual, Saleka shared, “I was very intimidated and nervous leading up to the shoot because there were a lot of physical logistics with the choreography and I’ve never been directed by my dad before, but once we were on set it actually felt really natural. He always emphasizes the emotional intention over everything. Since I wrote the song, we were able to easily talk about the meaning of each line, how it connects to the movement and contributes to the arc of the overall video.”
