With Big bossout now, the legendary multi-hyphen and Shine cover star makes her directorial debut, spearheading a new highly personal visual album.

“I ended up writing the story that I didn’t even know I wanted to tell,” says Palmer, “which was my musical journey and everything that I experienced and learned and felt, and how the different narratives I told myself stopped me from being able to live in this very expressive, creative flow.”
