“Lucky” by Raveena

Empire Records recording artist, Raveena, releases her new album, Where the Butterflies Go in the Rain, on June 14th. Ahead of the LP’s arrival, the artist shares new single “Lucky,” which sees her embracing her earliest pop and R&B influences. The track is accompanied by a video directed by Isha Dipika Walia featuring Raveena falling in love with a life-size caterpillar. The video was inspired by visceral qualities in asian cinema including directors Tran Anh Hung, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, and Wong Kong Wai.

Embracing the sounds of classic artists like Fleetwood Mac, Brandy, Bob Marley, Joni Mitchell, and Marvin Gaye, to name a few, Where the Butterflies Go in the Rain draws inspiration from people who, “are really good at capturing the beauty and loss of life in the same breath,” she describes. In her signature style, Raveena seamlessly unites that expansive songwriting with traditional Indian instruments and feel-good early 2000s pop hits —putting forth a work that’s more unabashedly herself than any that’s come before.

Raveena is the first artist of Indian heritage to perform solo at Coachella, and recently completed her Saturn Return—welcoming a season of growth, transformation, and calm that’s central to her newest full-length offering. Reflecting on her forthcoming album, “I don’t think I’ve ever understood a record so well before—It wasn’t like the process I used to have with past albums where I was more anxious about being at my best. This time, it was all intuition, and I knew the album was right when I finally had the feeling of rest.”
