Agnes Obel has released the mesmerizing animated video for her new single “Golden Green.”  Directed by acclaimed visual artist Jonas Bjerre – who is also the frontman for the Platinum Danish alt/rock band MEW – the video is available to view here.

“I was honored to take on the task of making a video for this beautiful song,” says Bjerre.  “The bells that emphasize 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, 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.”

Citizen of Glass is the follow up to 2013’s critically-acclaimed Aventine about which Paste wrote, “Agnes Obel exists at the crux where beauty and sadness are indistinguishable, weaving sedative piano whispers around tales of aborted love.  Her haunting compositions melded the primal, delicate and forsaken into one of the most gorgeous albums of [2013].”  The new album will be available as a Digital Download, CD with lyric booklet, and on 180g black vinyl LP + download code in a gatefold sleeve.

Agnes Obel will tour North America in 2017.
