Diamante has premiered the slice-of-domestic-life video for the title track of her latest album, “American Dream” (review). Watch it below.
“‘American Dream’ is about a modern-day romance that feels like a romance from a classic Hollywood film,” Diamante told American Songwriter. “The song is an ode to all things retro and is a love song to all my favorite classic Americana time periods. The video shows me as a ’50s-housewife-gone-rogue-mob-boss when my husband gets arrested and I have to step in … It’s definitely one of the most entertaining videos I have done.”
Diamante previously premiered the female-empowerment themed video for the new album’s first single, “Ghost Myself.”
“American Dream” is Diamante’s second album, following 2018’s “Coming in Hot.” After parting ways with her record label, Better Noise Music, in 2019, “American Dream” is an independent release, produced by Howard Benson and Neil Sanderson of Judge & Jury.
“With ‘American Dream,’ I was given the ultimate artistic freedom to express my most personal moments, stories, confessions, flaws, fears, hopes, mistakes, desires, vices, heartaches and redemption in a way I have never been able to in the past,” Diamante said. “Every word on this album is my personal diary screaming in your face. This album has no limitations, restrictions or filter, really.”
