On Tuesday 05 February 2019, the music video for “Supernova” by Within Temptation, as featured on their seventh studio album “RESIST”, was exclusively premiered on Billboard.
The music video, which was recorded in full green screen areas, was released on Billboard. Sharon Den Adel on what the song and video are about:
It’s about the fact you’re always in battle with yourself and looking to make peace with both of those sides. You want a big sign from the afterlife, a big bang or something that tells you, ‘Yeah, he’s OK, he’s gonna be fine.’ That’s something you’re always searching for.
One of the tracks as featured on their seventh full length studio album is “Supernova”. The track was firstly performed live during their RESIST Europe Tour late 2018. Since the release of the futuristic sounding song, fans were eager to know the story behind the song. Sharon den Adel explains:
I wrote this song for my dad. He died last year in April. It’s about the fact, when somebody passes away, you hope they’ll give you a sign that they’re OK. This song is about you hoping to see this ‘supernova’, this super bright star. This super glow, like a sign from this afterlife.
Recently, the song was performed in a beautiful acoustic way on BBC Radio 2. Listen to their acoustic performance here.
