Critically acclaimed and multi-award winning electronic violinist Lindsey Stirling has released her new single “Underground” through all digital and streaming platforms. The new song will be included on Stirling’s highly-anticipated fifth studio album, “Artemis”, which releases everywhere Friday, September 6 through BMG. Featuring Stirling’s signature brand of violin-driven, electronic music, “Underground” marks a new chapter for the music impresario.
Tackling themes of overcoming obstacles, and fighting through life’s downfalls to reclaim one’s happiness and strength, Stirling tells the story of Artemis, Goddess of the Moon, and uniquely draws parallels to her own personal experiences. This theme is heavily displayed in the track’s new music video which released today. Set in a dark futuristic-world, the video opens with Stirling tethered to restraints as she vigorously plays the violin. “Artemis” appears amidst a bright moon, shedding light on the futuristic world, giving Stirling the strength to break free of her restraints.
Stirling further expands on “Artemis” – ‘One of the best examples of perseverance is the moon. Time and time again she gets covered in shadow and if one didn’t know better, it would sometimes seem as though she ceased to exist. There have been times of my life where I have felt completely overcome by the “shadow” of grief, or depression; I felt like I’d never feel full happiness again. But the moon has taught me a powerful lesson. Just because she gets covered in shadow doesn’t mean she isn’t still there… and that she won’t fight back to reclaim her full light. Artemis is the goddess of the moon. This album tells her story; it tells my story; I think it tells everyone’s story.’
