Toronto musician Anna Atkinson dropped the music video for When We Were Young.
Taken from the album Sky Stacked Full.
Have a look at the video.
“When We Were Young” is about making things together. She is a descendant of a long line of makers. Anna’s maternal grandfather was a shoemaker who also made ornate wood carvings with a pen knife. Her mother was a visual artist, phenomenal cook and quilt maker.
This new single explores Anna’s connection to the past. When she was a child, her mother had a subscription to ARTnews, and one edition had an article about a Canadian artist – Janet Morton – who knit a sweater for a house on Ward’s Island. Anna thought it was the most amazing concept and it was the initial inspiration for the song – its working title (Sweater For A House) came from that.
