A few months after the release of the video for “Giovanni,” Jamila Woods is introducing her next studio album by releasing a visual for its lead single, “ZORA.”

“My weaponry is my energy… An antidote for the feeling of being judged on first glance. A salve for when people think they know you better than you know yourself,” Woods shared via an official press statement, breaking down “ZORA.” “It’s about refusing to be essentialized and not allowing your identity to be put in a box. You contain multitudes. You are ever-evolving. A song to get free from stereotypes & assumptions.”

Known as LEGACY! LEGACY!, Jamila Woods’ new LP is set to see release on May 10 via Jagjaguwar and Closed Sessions; the project is also currently available for pre-order. The video for “ZORA” was put together by director Vincet Martell and producer Jordan Phelps, and can be viewed above. Tusk Chicago, Alyx Harch, No Merit, The Stony Island Arts Bank and VAM STUDIO Co. are also credited with helping to bring the “ZORA” vignette to life.
