Music video for “Lift Me Up,” replete with vintage hot-rod and fight sequence can be viewed below:
The single features Justin performing together with Butcher Babies‘ Carla Harvey.
Elana Justin explains: “The song is about realising that you can’t find validation through other people. It’s easy to fall into the trap of avoidance, and trying to distract yourself from the growth you require by looking for love in all the wrong places. Facing inward can be truly difficult, but through that journey you find empowerment.”
Carla Harvey (Butcher Babies) concurs stating “I love collaborating with strong women on projects so when I was asked to add my vocals to “Lift Me Up,” I happily obliged. The result…an infectious tune, and a new found friendship!”
Motive Black will appeal to fans of Evanescence, Delain, Follow The Cypher, The Pretty Reckless, Halestorm, In This Moment, Shinedown.
“Lift Me Up” was produced at the legendary NRG Studios in North Hollywood, Calif. by Grammy-winning Nick Rowe (Vampire Weekend, Lamb Of God, Madonna, Snoop Dogg) and mixed by Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Korn, Papa Roach). “It’s been a real treat working with Elana,” Nick Rowe explains.
“She is a diamond in the rough—unafraid to explore new musical territory and put her soul on the page lyrically.”
