    Cécile McLorin Salvant: "Until"

    Cécile McLorin Salvant performs "Until" from her Nonesuch Records debut, Ghost Song. Video directed by Matthew Edginton with animation by Salvant. "This is the weirdest, moodiest set of lyrics," Salvant says. "I feel like lyrics can morph into what you want them to be depending on when you listen. Of course it’s about love and romance, but there are these weird turns it takes, the dance at the center of the song. And that idea of catching the world in an hourglass is so great to me. I’m obsessed with hourglasses; I draw a lot of them in my visual art. It’s one of my favorite memento mori moments—the beauty of it and also the finality of it."
