Dancing violinist Lindsey Stirling has released the music video for her new single "The Arena." It is the first single off of her upcoming third album, Brave Enough. It features Dancing with the Stars professional Derek Hough as her dance partner, a contrast to her usual solo performances.
"The Arena" starts off with a quote by Theodore Roosevelt, from his speech Citizenship in a Republic given in Paris in 1910:
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles; or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena.
The quote correlates with the video's idea that no one who criticizes your actions matter, as you are the one who is actually willing to chase after what you want.
Brave Enough will be available everywhere on August 19, 2016. Pick it up on Amazon.
