The action-packed visual finds the left-field singer/songwriter armed for combat in an epic sword-fight against Teake, a Wushu expert that Twigs discovered online. You’ll have to watch the full match on the streets of London to see who won.
Twigs praised Murai for bringing her vision of “Sad Day” to life. thank you so much @muraihiro for collaborating with me on this project,” Twigs wrote in an Instagram post. “I am not sure what my art is turning into these days because music video doesn’t feel right anymore for half of the worlds I want to create and the years I spend learning new ways of moving.”
The music video for “Sad Day” follows the visual art of singles “Cellophane,” “Holy Terrain,” and “Home With You.” Each track appears on Twigs’ acclaimed sophomore album, Magdalene, which arrived last November.
In July, Twigs lent her undeniable talent to Ty Dolla $ign’s latest single “Ego Death.” It also features the likes of Kanye West and Skrillex.
