Anna of the North Debuts “Swirl” Video
Anna of the North shares the official video for her latest single “Swirl”, featuring stop motion animation created by Anna herself, streaming now on her official YouTube channel. Next week, Anna of the North will embark on a run of North American tour dates, starting off in DC on March 16th making stops in NY, Los Angeles and more! Fans of Anna Of The North include, Tyler, the Creator, Dua Lipa, Alina Baraz, Rejjie Snow, Steve Lacy and more. Last month, Anna announced an expanded, deluxe edition of her acclaimed third studio album Crazy Life – arriving April 28th via Elektra Records.
Commenting on the video, Anna shares, “I wanted to extend the crazy life world with this music video. I didn’t know how, but eventually, I figured it out. Claymation. It took forever, but it was really fun seeing the end result. Maybe one day I’ll become a stop-motion filmmaker. Swirl is a song all about having too much time on your hands by yourself. This music video definitely had me thinking about things other than how lonely life can be.”
“The album is about everything, nothing, and all in between,” Anna explained. “It’s about those small things we don’t necessarily talk about—like the days where you lie on the couch because you can’t get out of the house. Many of the songs are about being stuck and how it’s hard to get out of your own patterns.”
Giving these themes concrete form as a ‘house,’ Anna teamed up with Australian designer Montana Kitching for Crazy Life’s album and single art. The artwork for each of the previously released singles corresponds to a place in the ‘house.’ As “Dandelion” introduced viewers to Anna’s living room, complete with her fluffy dog and thriving plants, “Bird Sing” captured the image directly outside Anna’s bedroom window, giving you a 360- look at Anna’s dwelling. “Nobody” provides a stark overview of Anna’s bedroom with the messy bed and leftover cereal that we’ve all been privy to at some point.
