Agnes Obel has released a video for her new single ‘Golden Green’ directed by Mew frontman Jonas Bjerre.

“I was honoured to take on the task of making a video for this beautiful song”, says Bjerre. “The bells that emphasise the rhythm through the song, for some reason they made me think of blinking lights, and glass – glass being a recurring theme in Agnes’s new songs”.

“As she told me more about the song, I started having ideas for some kind of internal world”, he continues. “Maybe a world inside someone’s head, where various thoughts and feelings are in opposition, depicted as animated versions of Agnes, struggling to find harmony”.

Now watch the video:

Obel’s new album ‘Citizen Of Glass’ will be released on 21 Oct, and she’ll be on tour in the UK in November. Here are the dates:

26 Nov: Bristol, Anson Rooms
27 Nov: London, Shepherd’s Bush Empire
29 Nov: Birmingham, Town Hall
30 Nov: Manchester, Albert Hall
