Raveena shares a new video for “Stronger” + announces US tour
Today, Raveena shares a new video from her debut album Lucid. “Stronger,” directed by Danica Kleinknecht with creative direction by Raveena, is a visual metaphor detailing Raveena’s journey to healing and self-love. The video is a dance, a physical story in which Raveena is expressively fighting against the forces holding her back, slowly waning, until finally there is a shift and an inner strength is found.

Raveena is also set to embark on her first headlining tour across the United States after a sold-out club run last year. Starting September 3rd in San Francisco, she’ll play 16 shows across the country with stops in Seattle, Chicago, Brooklyn, and Atlanta, before ending October 1st in Los Angeles. All tickets are available here.
Lucid is the Queens-based singer’s most ambitious work to date as she experiments with her vocal and emotional range more than ever before, building a world around her own self-discovery for listeners to experience alongside her. The album dives headfirst into the darker parts of Raveena’s emotional spectrum as she embraces her spirituality and confronts trauma head-on. The album finds her searching for healing in real time as it pertains to her culture and her identity as the daughter of South Asian immigrants. Drawing inspiration from artists like D’Angelo, Bjork, Outkast, Erykah Badu and legendary Indian singer Asha Puthli, on Lucid, Raveena expands her sound to embody her full self with all its complexity and beauty.
