Los Angeles-based artist serpentwithfeet presents the video for “Heart Storm (with NAO)” from his new album, DEACON, out now on Secretly Canadian. DEACON is a study delving into Black, gay love and the tenderness present in the best companionships, romantic or otherwise. Its release was met with an incredible reception, including a New York Times feature and high praise from Time, NPR Music, Billboard, MTV News, Entertainment Weekly, and more. “Heart Storm” is “billowing and otherworldly and it makes love sound like a celestial invasion” (Stereogum). Premiered today by Grazia USA, the video was shot by Domo Jones and Alex Knowles in Los Angeles and London, connecting serpent and Nao via open white space and reflecting the track’s beauty and tension.

The follow-up to his debut album, soil, one of 2018’s most praised albums of the year, DEACON highlights serpent’s growth as a songwriter, embracing straightforward approaches to expression. The album’s title takes its name from the Christian office, a figure who helps maintain order within the church and himself, and proudly follows in the tradition of R&B artists whose gifts were helmed in the Black church.
