Lindsey Stirling is the Christmas gift that keeps on giving. Not content with releasing her incredible festive album Warmer in the Winter, she’s also dropped visuals for ‘Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy’ and ‘Christmas C’mon’. Now, Lindsey has released another music video, this time for the mesmerising ‘Carol of the Bells’.
The critically acclaimed electric violinist is at the forefront of the captivating visual, however, she is also joined by a series of contemporary dancers. Whilst the snow and Christmas trees bring a little festive spirit, ultimately the visual is rather haunting, thanks to the dark vibe throughout.
Watch the visual for ‘Carol of the Bells’ below.
‘Carol of the Bells’ is taken from Lindsey’s most recent album, Warmer in the Winter. Speaking about the album in our interview last month, Lindsey said: “I’ve “made plans” for a Christmas album for the last three years, haha. But, other projects kept taking precedence and I’d find myself in November wondering, “Whatever happened to that Christmas album I was going to produce?” And then I’d say to myself, “Oh well…there’s always next year!” Well…it’s finally that year!”
“I think this album is, by nature, so different from the others because most of the arrangements come from already-popular traditional and modern Christmas songs. So, I would say I felt less pressure than I did when I produced my other albums, which contain 100% original content. There’s a lot more personal and emotional investment that goes into creating something entirely your own… when you have nothing to pull from but yourself- which is why Warmer in the Winter was less ‘stress’ and more ‘fun’ for me than probably any of my other albums thus far. I did actually co-produce three original songs for the album, and I’m kinda curious to see which of those original songs my fans enjoy the most.”
In addition to spreading Christmas cheer, Lindsey has been lighting up our TV screens thanks to her incredible stint on Dancing With The Stars. The electric violinist showcased that she was also nimble on her feet, finishing in second place with partner Mark Ballas.
