Joanna Newsom is back with whimsical video, new album “Divers”

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.
