We already knew Ruth Lorenzo was a woman with superpowers: she can hold a note for as long as she wants, and she could take Spain out of the right side of the scoreboard at Eurovision. Now she also resurrects the dead.
That’s just one of the things she does in the music video for her new single “Underworld”, which was released on Wednesday.
Ruth Lorenzo – “Underworld” music video
The video shows Ruth driving along a lonely road at night all dressed up in black leather. She’s going to a cemetery, where she has prepared a ritual to bring back to life her lover.
Spain’s 2014 Eurovision star unleashes her power vocals and oozes sensuality while she prepares to exhume her lover’s body, which, of course, had been buried in the underworld.
During the story, images of Ruth portrayed as a goddess and a devil appear. One minute she’s dancing with a choir of “angels” with white and golden gowns, and the next, she’s a blood thirsty devil sitting on an iron throne.
What has Ruth been up to before “Underworld”?
“Underworld” is Ruth’s first new song since her second album Loveaholic was released in March 2018. Sadly, her second record wasn’t as popular in Spain as the first one, and it only managed to stay for six weeks in albums chart.
This new song is said to be the first one from her future third album. In an interview with Spain’s edition of Huffington Post, Ruth said she hoped this song could lead to a new record: “an artist’s goal always is trying to put out new albums”.
She also explained that with “Underworld”, which was released on June 28, she wanted to “mark her musical direction”. “It’s a fun song. Although it speaks about a very mad love of someone who’s willing to go further than the underworld for it, it’s a jaunty and crazy song”, she comments.
