While Sigrid is currently at work on her hotly-anticipated debut album, the singer recently unveiled the colourful video for her latest single ‘High Five’.

“‘High Five’ is about the importance of being completely open and honest with each other,” said Sigrid of the track, speaking to i-D. “We used high fives as an image of superficial relations. I love the tune, and there was such a good team behind it! Emily Warren, Martin Sjølie, Odd Martin Skålnes and I.”

“Sigrid and I talked a lot about the power of friendship,” adds director Ivana Bobic, who also shot Sigrid’s videos for ‘Strangers’ and ‘Raw’. “We love all the high school movies, and Spielberg films like E.T or Close Encounters that are in a magical world but also really they’re a metaphor for friendship.”
