Joanna Newsom's new Divers hit stores last week, marking the latest marvelous chapter in the harpist's career. The title track is but one of the pearls of the LP, and it's being highlighted with a cloudy set of visuals.
Like the recent video for "Sapokanikan," the clip was directed by filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson. It finds the face of Newsom hanging above a model mountain scene, narrating the neo-classical chamber piece with musings on life and death, the relationships between sailors and their loved ones, and more.
Infinite regrets, phosphorescence, and questions of who loved whom best, it can all be found above.
