Shura Releases the Video for Her Debut Album's Hidden Track '311215'


About three months after dropping her debut album Nothing’s Real, English artist Shura has delivered another visual for the critically acclaimed project. This time it’s for "311215,” a track hidden in the album’s closer “White Light.”

Much like the rest of the record, “311215” is an intimate piece that touches on the theme of death—specifically the hypothetical death of the singer's parents, as well as her own. The song’s deeply personal subject matter is underscored by the video’s nostalgic imagery. We see a TV set in front of a white wall playing clips from Shura’s family home videos, all of which show the singer during her early childhood.

“'311215' is about fear of death. The death (one day) of my parents and to a certain extent my own; That everything must come to an end,” Shura explained on Facebook. “I chose to finish my record with this song in part because it deals with endings. For me it also marks the start of another journey. Who knows where that will lead…”
