New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Soul-pop artist Anna Graceman has released her captivating music video for "Night Follows." This vulnerable piano piece is accompanied by a stunning video that captures the emotional weight Graceman carried after being carjacked at gunpoint. The video is available on her YouTube channel.

Anna Graceman's "Night Follows" video, co-directed by herself and Rachel Deeb, expresses the impact of a terrifying event on her life. "'Night Follows' was inspired by a traumatic experience I had," she explains. "A large SUV drove down the street past me, turned around at the cul de sac, and then parked in the middle of the road next to me. Someone in a hoodie came up to my window and tapped a gun to the glass telling me to 'get out of the car, babe.'" The video captures Graceman's emotional journey in coming to terms with what she experienced. As she sings the powerful lyrics, "it won't keep me awake," Graceman stares into the camera showing the audience that overcoming this adversity has only left her stronger. The song allows her to voice that even though she has been able to process the effect of the carjacking on her life, the trauma of the event will always remain in the back of her mind. "After about a year of trying to write, I came up with the idea for "Night Follows." It's a metaphor for the fear and weight I still carry around from this experience. I'd written a verse, pre, and chorus before I brought it into a session with Henry Brill." The video centering around her incredible vocals leaves the audience to connect Graceman's impactful lyrics to their own experiences. "I've been able to channel my experience into a song. A song that will hopefully speak to others who have their own fears and struggles following them around. I'm still working through things. The things I've been through have continued to follow me, but will no longer keep me awake." "Night Follows" showcases her talent both vocally and in songwriting through a vulnerable music video that leaves a significant impact on anyone who watches it.
