Multilingual singer Nadina shares the official music video for “Shou Baddou Yseer” from her Nettwerk debut album, In The Now (out now).
Directed by Joseph Klymkiv, the video follows a less traditional narrative structure using a collection of locations in and around her current residence of Vancouver, BC. These scenes are intercut with beautiful underwater footage of the naturally aquatic singer submerged in the city’s cold, coastal waters.
Most songs are written about life experiences. Nadina’s music is as varied and fascinating as her personal history.

Influential Canadian outfit Delerium partners with Billboard.com to share the official music video for “Days Turn Into Nights” from their first studio album in six years, Music Box Opera (out now via Nettwerk Records).
Directed by Stephen Scott, the evocative and abstract video features dancers in a surreal, digitally manipulated landscape performing graceful acrobatic choreography in a time-warped, slow-motion dream of sorts.
“Days Turn Into Nights” debuted on the Billboard Club Chart as the #1 Breakout song; and now enters the Top 15 to land at #13. This success follows the release of the nine-song EP that include several remixes by Andy Caldwell, Seven Lions and Solarstone.
For “Days Turn Into Nights,” Delerium incorporates a male singer for the second time in 12 years! In the past, Delerium has featured strong female vocalists – having worked with Leigh Nash (of Sixpence None the Richer), Miranda Lee Richards, Butterfly Boucher, Emily Haines (of Metric) and the most commercially successful single, “Silence,” featured Sarah McLachlan. Only once since Matthew Sweet on “Daylight" (from 2000’s Poem) has Delerium brought in a male vocalist.
