Shilpa Ray released her new album Door Girl today -- it's a terrific record that really shows off her prowess, personality and songwriting, and you can stream the whole thing below. She's also got a new video for "Morning Terors Nights of Dread" which was directed by Shilpa and Candace Thompson, and takes us to both heaven and hell. (It was shot at Park Church Co-Op.) It's a lot of fun and you can watch it over at Apple Music. BV contributor Ebru Yildiz, who was the Director of Photography on the video (and shot the Door Girl album cover), has given us gallery of behind-the-scenes pics from the video and you can check those out in the gallery above.

Having just played two Door Girl record release shows at Pianos (where Shilpa actually was a door girl), she'll be heading out on tour next week, including UK/EU dates in October, and more North American shows in November. New dates include a stop at Jersey City's WFMU Monty Hall on 11/10 (tickets).
