VIDEO: Leila Adu — "Fortuna"

Leila Adu's haunting new song about love and loss.

@leilaadu @urbalt

This is the haunting second single from Leila’s full length album Ode To An Unknown Factory Worker, which just dropped recently.  You may recall that she’s been mentioned here before. In Leila’s words, the song is While the song tells the story of “the wheel of fortune that eternally goes up and down with our affairs, both emotional and material. It speaks of true friends, loneliness and the power to ride out low times.”

Catch her the next time she’s in your area.

BTW, shout out to URB Alt’s Boston Fielder on the shooting and editing of the video.
