Lola Kirke Premieres New Single + Video “Monster”

Actress and musician Lola Kirke released her new song “Monster” today, accompanied by a stunning video shot in Tokyo. “Monster” reflects Kirke’s open and empathetic songwriting; in an interview with Rolling Stone, she says, “I wrote ‘Monster’ while I was watching someone I love struggle with self love and care, but in the process of writing it, I realized that I hadn’t exactly mastered the delicate balance of those things either. So instead of the message being like ‘I can help you ’cause I know what you should do,’ it became ‘I’m not sure I can’t help you but I’m like you too.'”


“Monster” was shot in Tokyo while Kirke was on location shooting her acclaimed Amazon series Mozart in the Jungle and directed by Elizabeth Koe, a writer on the show.
