Let Joanna Newsom look into your eyes while you watch her video for “Divers”

Yes, this is THE video that has been leaving tracks and turning heads in theaters across the country. Now you can watch it alone or with other, secretly at your desk at work, in the cozy twisted sheets and covers of your very own bed, on your couch, on your phone…anywhere for that matter.

I never thought a video simply composed of Joanna Newsom’s face and a mystical, morphing landscape could be so commanding. Newsom stares you down while the movement of her lips remove any secret as to where her perfectly pristine and elegant enunciation comes from. You cannot escape this video once it begins. Seven minutes of boiling skies, rich and colorful puffs of smoke or are they clouds? Her eyes peek through caves and small windows of the decadent world that video director Paul Thomas Anderson and album art creator Kim Keeer built. It is truly a must watch, as her new record is a must listen.
