Joanna Newsom Unveils Paul Thomas Anderson-Directed ‘Divers’ Video
Paul Thomas Anderson directed the clip, which superimposes Newsom atop a cloud-engulfed mountainous landscape designed by Kim Keever, who also created Divers’ artwork. See the results up above. Anderson also directed Newsom’s video for Divers' lead single, “Sapokanikan.” The two artists have been frequent collaborators, with Newsom appearing in the director's 2014 film, Inherent Vice.
Divers is Newsom’s first album since 2010’s Have One on Me. You can grab it as a digital download, double vinyl LP, cassette or CD at Drag City’s website. You cannot, however, stream it on Spotify, as Newsom has some strongly held views regarding the streaming platform. (Namely, she thinks it’s a “musician-hating machine.”)
Newsom will kick off a North American tour in support of her latest album on Dec. 6 in Boston. From there, she’ll make stops in New York City; Philadelphia; D.C.; Munhall, Pa.; Buffalo, N.Y.; Toronto; Royal Oak, Mich.; Chicago; St. Paul, Minn.; and Madison, Wis. Find ticket information right here.
