‘Divers’ video from Joanna Newsom directed by Paul Thomas Anderson is here.
The eagerly awaited, much hyped video for the title track of Joanna Newsom’s new album Divers finally arrived this week, after being subject to a select number of theatre showings early this month.
Why the theatrical screenings? Why the hype? That’s because it’s directed by Paul Thomas Anderson – acclaimed director of Boogie Nights, Magnolia and, most recently, Inherent Vice: his film adaptation of the eponymous Thomas Pynchon novel, narrated by Newsom herself.
The video, a beautifully spun 7minute splash of beauty, also features the visuals of Kim Keever, responsible for the artwork featured on and throughout Divers itself, making it a neat denouement of the release’s epically ethereal visual themes.
