It’s been five years since Newsom’s latest music, but she’s back, with a whimsical video and new music on the way.
Watch her new video for “Sapokanikan,” below, which was directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. She practically hops and skips along city streets, day and night, her quirky and enunciated vocals hearken to fairy-tale lands.
Newsom’s classical background and playful piano melodies lends a mythical air to her music. It’s no wonder the news of an upcoming record would get fans aflutter.
“Divers” will be out Oct. 23 on Drag City.
