Description

The video for "High School Never Ends," the lead single from Mykki Blanco's as-yet-unannounced new album, is a Shakespearean tragedy of sorts. Directed by Matt Lambert, it tells a non-linear Romeo and Juliet-like tale, replacing "fair Verona" with scenic rural Germany. The video was produced by Iconoclast in collaboration with The FADER and !K7, and it's debuting above.

The new clip, which was filmed gorgeously by Control cinematographer Martin Ruhe, is a heartbreaking story about outsiders—in this case, queer ones. Similar to stories about forbidden romance, it ends with unspeakable violence. It's all set against Mikky's string-heavy new track, which was produced by and features Woodkid.

According to Mykki Blanco and Matt Lambert, the powerful "High School Never Ends" video is also about the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe. “It never once overtly comments on orientation or race, but only ideas of 'us' and 'them,'" said Lambert. “I had once thought Europe was my safe haven from American white supremacy, and how wrong I became," Mykki Blanco added.
