Rina Sawayama has Shared a Jak Payne Directed visualizer for "Halloween"

Just in time for Halloween, Rina Sawayama has shared the visuals for “Frankenstein.” Directed by Jak Payne the video sees an isolated Rina struggling to navigate a house party until she puts herself together and commands everyone’s full attention. The track was written alongside Paul Epworth and features Matt Tong (Bloc Party) on drums. Speaking about the song Rina states “I wanted to write about how I’ve relied on my partner to help put me back together, but I realized it’s no ones job but mine”

Hold The Girl see’s Rina team up with long-term collaborators Clarence Clarity and Lauren Aquilina as well as enlisting help from the likes of the legendary Paul Epworth (Adele, Florence & the Machine), Stuart Price (The Killers, Madonna) and Marcus Andersson (Demi Lovato, Ashnikko) for their magic touch. The product of Rina and these collective minds coming together is an album that melds influences from across the pop spectrum and is a bold and honest statement of Rina’s personal evolution; coming to terms with her own past and the jubilation of turning to the future.

Sawayama is set to embark on a 13-date run in the US starting next week. The US leg of the tour will see Rina playing iconic venues like the Great Hall at Avant Gardner in New York City, Roadrunner in Boston, The Eastern in Atlanta, and the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
