Now is the time… with the release of her extraordinary new album Thank You this Friday, the legendary Diana Ross shows her appreciation to fans with a brand new music video for the song ‘All Is Well’. Directed by Amanda Demme in collaboration with Ms. Ross’ sons, Evan Ross (producer) and Ross Naess (photography), the music video is her first in over a decade. Also revealed is a stunning new photograph of the star, artfully captured at the shoot. This marks not only the release of the Thank You album this week on Decca Records/Universal Music Group/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, but the new single ‘I Still Believe’ – an uplifting song about love, hope and positivity – available now.
Diana Ross says of the video: “My sons gave me the confidence and encouragement to make this video. After spending almost two years not performing and not being in front of the camera, they supported me in easing back into being around lots of people. These three people really took care of me: Evan Ross (producer), Amanda Demme (director), Ross Naess (photography), and so many others. I am filled with appreciation for the work that they all did to make this happen.”
Talking about her inspiration behind the album, Ms. Ross explains how her love of singing kept her in good spirits during these unusual times: “I spent the past year recording new music and this music is a reflection of the joy and the love and the gratitude that I feel every day. It’s an album of great appreciation for life, and for all of you.”
She continues: “For me there was an urgency in making a meaningful album, working with what is happening now in our world. Through the power of music we are creating a new kind of conversation that supports our choices and the decisions that we make.”
The album features irrepressible upbeat numbers that lead you straight to the dancefloor, such as first single ‘Thank You’, ‘Tomorrow’, and second single ‘If the World Just Danced’, with which Ms. Ross literally got people around the globe dancing together with a fan-led music video.
