Sudan Archives’ new single “Selfish Soul” has a video. Dexter Story and Ben Dickey collaborated on the tune. Sudan Archives dances in the mud with her girlfriends while playing her violin upside down on a pole and standing on a roof in the Trey Lyons-directed video. Look it up below.

Sudan Archives said in a statement that the song is “about ladies and the celebration of hair.” It’s about representing various hair textures and appreciating all of their hues and textures.” She went on:

I feel like there’s an American standard of what beautiful hair is, and I wanted to show in this video that’s not what all beauty is; to showcase different hairstyles and different types of women and their hair. I was inspired by India.Arie’s “I Am Not My Hair,” one of the first songs I heard about this subject. She talks about extensions and weaves and natural hair and nappy hair, and that she’s not her hair; she won’t conform to the comparisons that would come up if you had a weave or sew-in or natural hair or Afro—that doesn’t represent her.

Sudan Archives released a video for “Home Maker,” her first new music in three years, in March. She remixed Future Islands’ “Born in a War” last year. Athena, her most recent album, was released in 2019.
