Phoebe Bridgers has shared the official video for ‘Savior Complex’, which was directed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and stars Paul Mescal.
Released exclusively on Facebook today (December 1), its new black-and-white visuals bring together the talents of Normal People actor Mescal and Fleabag‘s Waller-Bridge. You can watch the clip here ahead of its YouTube release next week (December 8).
According to a press release, Bridgers connected with her (almost) namesake over email during the coronavirus-enforced lockdown, having previously expressed her admiration for the actor, writer and producer’s work. Bridgers and Mescal, meanwhile, participated in a joint interview for Wonderland earlier this year.
Phoebe Bridgers is set to play ‘Savior Complex’ during tomorrow night’s episode of The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. The special performance was shot at LA’s famed Magic Castle venue.
Last week, the ‘Kyoto’ artist revealed that she was “in bed with a migraine” when she received the news of her Grammy nominations. “These things give me a lot of anxiety,” she added.
She released her new ‘Copycat Killer’ EP earlier this month, which contains stirring string reworkings of songs featured on ‘Punisher’.
