After six long years, Xtina is ready to return. Following a pair of enigmatic teasers on Twitter on Sunday (Apr. 29) that appeared to hint at a new album, Christina Aguilera further affirmed everyone’s suspicions aobut new music with another video late Tuesday (May 1.) The video is captionless, and is only 14 seconds long, but seems to provide a promise of exciting things to come.
The video fades in with a shadowed Aguilera lying on her back in moonlit water as crickets gently chirp in the distance, before cutting to the singer lying in bed, staring at the ceiling, surrounded by pillows and multi-colored stuffed animals. “I feel in life when you get to a place where you feel so comfortable, and so routine,” she says, “then, you know, you have to stop and start from scratch.” The video ends with Aguilera lighting a match, staring into the burning flame with her translucent blue eyes, as soft as the 808 drums beat in the background.
