Nathan Flint is looking forward to his second release off his debut album Stay Here, his new single “Sharbat Gula” is Nathan’s favourite track off the record. The title of the track takes inspiration from photographer and journalist Steve McCurry’s portrait called “The Afghan Girl”. Taken in 1984 it featured on the cover of National Geographic. The lyrics in the song reflect the story of the innocent people growing up in war torn countries. Nathan says, “I tried to imagine what may have been going on in this ‘Afghan Girl’s head, the tragedy that she may have already witnessed in her young life, I came across this image studying photography in high school, still a passion of mine this remains one of my favourite images.”
Nathan Flint is proud to be working with The A&R Department once again, he has also teamed up with film maker Mitch Sharp at Monkeystick Studios to release the music video for “Sharbat Gula", this is Nathan’s second time working with Monkeystick whom he also worked with on his debut single “I Will Succeed.”
“In this music video I took a completely different direction which doesn’t reflect the message of war, the music video reflects a completely different vibe all together, merely a strange relationship between a young man, played by Nathan, and female actor Shae Hudson, playing the young woman. The mysterious girl gives Nathan a poisonous poison which sends him running through the bush, he then leaps off a cliff into water. What I wanted to accomplish is that the lyrics of the song create wonder within the listeners ear of what the song was really about, I wanted to leave it up to the listener to decide.”
