Classically trained Laura Mvula is billed as the voice to watch for 2013, with critics raving over her unique fusion of orchestral soul and sonorous vocals.

The 26-year-old singer-songwriter is one of the few artists to appear both in the BBC Sound of 2013 list (based on tips from industry insiders) and be nominated for the 2013 BRITs Critics’ Choice Award.

Laura's combination of soulful harmonies and rich soundscapes has already seen her likened to Nina Simone, George Gershwin and Björk, among others.

Here Stylist exclusively premieres the video for Green Garden, the new single from Laura's debut album Sing To The Moon. Take a first look at the video single, infused with Laura’s signature use of percussive chimes and entrancing vocals, below and let us know your thoughts in the comments section or Twitter.

Laura’s debut album Sing To The Moon will be released on 4 March. Green Garden is released on 24 February.
