Toronto-based singer Aiza shared her latest single "Turn to Gold," a meditative, percussion-heavy track perfect for manifesting the best possible 2020. As the name might imply, the video is heavy on the warm, glitzy tones of gold in everything from the set design to the wardrobe.

"I describe it as a mantra, an incantation. In a way, I'm casting a spell. It came to me in a flash at a time when I was experiencing a lot of turmoil," Aiza said of the song in an email to The FADER. "I've been meditating a lot lately and I wanted to create my own guided meditation. The harmonies are steady and smooth, as a means to quiet the mind and slowly get you into a trance, and since I absolutely love to dance, it was very important for me that the song also had a lot of percussions."

The song's rhythmic chants and percussions feel intentionally ancestral, something Aiza says was "a means to realign with my inner power and my ancestors' wisdom...It's a reminder that we are all-powerful, and that ultimately we get to choose what we want to make of our lives."
