Tierra Whack Releases ‘Shower Song’ Live-Action/Animation Hybrid Music Video

The 90-second short, created by the Grammy-nominated recording artist in partnership with conceptual artist Alex Da Corte, serves as the first single for the singer’s debut album, ‘WORLD WIDE WHACK,’ out March 15.

Grammy-nominated recording artist and creative auteur Tierra Whack unveiled the first single of her debut album, WORLD WIDE WHACK, with the wildly creative video, SHOWER SONG. Partnering with American conceptual artist Alex Da Corte, Tierra's imaginative mind and innovative spirit intertwine in the 90-second live-action/animation hybrid visual, which centers around her morning routine. De Corte adds even more color to Tierra's lyrics with his visual magic and animation, making every word and object on the screen pop.

Tierra intends to up the ante by delivering four different creative vinyls to commemorate the release. For the album artwork, the artist will create more works of art with Da Corte, who previously directed the rapper's stirring animation, Dora.

With references including Pierrot, the original sad clown of 17th-century Italian theater, radical 1930s fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli, and Donna Summer, Da Corte's cover art represents the first reveal of the WORLD WIDE WHACK character, an alter ego whose surprising story will unfold in images and video over the course of the album's visual rollout.

Last year, Tierra released her creative music documentary Cypher, which blurred the lines of reality and fiction. Directed by Chris Moukarbel and produced in partnership with Andscape, Cypher is currently available on Hulu. Tierra also was spotlighted on the Netflix docuseries Ladies First: A Story of Women in Hip-Hop, which featured Queen Latifah, Latto, Roxanne Shante and more.

WORLD WIDE WHACK is now available for pre-order, and releases March 15.
