“Let it Breathe” is the first single from Anna Hillburg’s upcoming second album Really Real. The video was shot at Oakland’s Mountain View Cemetery by Swiss directing duo DasPlayground (Laetitia Gauchat and Bastien Bron). Really Real is set to be released October 2nd on Oakland’s own California Clap Records!
A few words from the label:
“A lot has changed in San Francisco between the release of Anna Hillburg’s debut album in 2013 to, Really Real, the full-length follow up due out on October 2nd. Artists and musicians have fled the city for more affordable and sustainable pastures, replaced by venture capitalists and computer programmers but some, like Hillburg, have remained in their rent controlled apartments watching the landscape transform outside. Really Real is a reminder of those hold-outs and the soul of the city that remains under the cracks in the sidewalks. Where Hillburg’s debut introduced the world to her impressive musicianship and songwriting craftsmanship, Really Real marches forward, battle worn, weary, and wise.”
