Dia addresses the topics of anxiety and depression in “Happy Together” video

Experimental pop artist Dia has collaborated with Rock & Roll photographer Koury Angelo (Rolling Stone, Billboard, People) and Corinne Foxx(Miss Golden Globe, Dolce & Gabbana, Ralph Lauren) to create a video for her cover of the Turtle’s song Happy Together. The video depicts one woman’s ever shifting relationship to her mental health as illustrated in the contrast between a dreamy Topanga Canyon landscape and an abandoned home. Her fragmented self image is symbolized through broken mirrors, shifting moods and surreal overlays. Miss Foxx is spokesperson for NAMI.org (National Alliance on Mental Illness) and wanted to explore the internal struggle with anxiety and depression that so many people face, particularly in light of a historically high national suicide rate. The video was released via People Magazine.
