Fresh off the release of her new critically acclaimed album, iconic singer-songwriter, activist, educator, visual artist, and multi-award winner Buffy Sainte-Marie revealed today the compelling fan-produced video for the title track available exclusively onBillboard.  The bold new LP, Power In The Blood, was released last month via True North Records – her first in six years – and is a reminder that, five decades on, Sainte-Marie is a voice as vital and significant as ever. “Featuring images of oil spills, fracking, protests, tanks, and corporate interests run amok,” says Billboard’s Joe Lynch, “this clip is a tribute to Buffy, her political convictions and those protesting for a better world.”

Power in the Blood is a sculpture of an artist ever-evolving and a statement of a life’s work realized – challenging, empowering, and celebrating the listener with each and every song.  Recorded in Toronto, Sainte-Marie enlisted three different producers, a first for her, to help shape the album; Michael Phillip Wojewoda (Barenaked Ladies, Rheostatics), Jon Levine (Nelly Furtado, K’NAAN), and Chris Birkett (Sinéad O’Connor, Bob Geldof).  Featuring all but two original tracks, the album starts with a re-imagined version of “It’s My Way,” which premiered on NPR Music upon the album’s first announcement.  The song originally appeared on her acclaimed debut album and demonstrates how her work can transcend generations while still inspiring individualism and self-expression 50 years after it was written.
