The Arena/Lindsey Stirling/Derek Hough

The music video begins with a quote by Theodore Roosevelt: “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 video is set in a “Mad-Max” type arena showing Lindsey battling herself to overcome some of her own unique challenges. (Mad Max: Fury Road)

“I wrote this album while I was searching for the courage to be vulnerable” Lindsey said. “I wanted to tear down the walls I’d built around my heart and each song represents a step of my journey.”

After teasing the release of her forthcoming third studio album, Lindsey Stirling has dropped the first single today, titled “The Arena.”  The following information was posted on youredm:

The music is noticeably more powerful and poignant than a lot of her previous work, making use of strong drum work and more electronic influence in the bassline and backing synths. The music video also works to present a stronger Lindsey Stirling herself, as the concept of an “arena” and the motif of a post-apocalyptic wasteland battleground are surely settings in which only the strong survive.

Lindsey’s dance partner in the video is also a professional dancer and has appeared on Dancing With The Stars, Derek Hough.

Lindsey is a very talented violinist and dancer.  Derek Hough is an amazing ballroom dancer who has won the mirror ball trophy 6 times on Dancing With the Stars.


This is the album cover from Brave Enough by Lindsey Stirling.

The video is interesting but the talent of Lindsey and Derek definitely supersede the actual storyline. Enjoy!
