MICHAEL LINGTON UNVEILS OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR NO. 1 HIT “MOON GODDESS”
Michael Lington gives an explosive performance of his No. 1 hit “Moon Goddess” in the evocative black and white official video, out now. The acclaimed saxophonist is joined by guitarist Angie Swan (David Byrne, will.i.am) in the video, which was directed by Ryan Wave of 4sure Media. A nod to Ramsey Lewis’ classic “Sun Goddess,” “Moon Goddess” is from Lington’s new EP, Looking Ahead.
“I’m very passionate about ‘Moon Goddess’ and super excited to share this video with my fans – I’m so grateful for them,” says Michael Lington. “I wanted the video to capture the vibe of the song – like we’re in a void and close to the moon – and Ryan Wave did so with a very classic, cinematic feel.”
A hard grooving, emotionally empowering track, “Moon Goddess” showcases the intuitive dynamic Lington created co-writing and co-producing with famed saxophonist/producer/horn arranger David Mann for the first time. With a freewheeling and soulful energy reminiscent of classic CTI Records releases, the album version of “Moon Goddess” features an infectious, jangly funk intro and subsequent solo by guitarist Paul Jackson Jr. Veteran jazz/R&B drummer Michael White also joined them in the studio.
“Moon Goddess” charted at No. 1 on Radiowave’s Groove Jazz 100. The single hit #2 on the Smooth Jazz Network Top 100 tally and appeared in the top five of the Billboard Smooth Jazz Airplay and Mediabase Smooth Jazz charts.
Lington, who has charted more than 25 hit singles and performed in over 40 countries, will resume his summer tour with two performances at Chicago Jazz Getaway (September 14 & 16). Tickets are available at https://michaellington.com/tour/.
