Agnes Obel reveals video for ‘Golden Green’ – premiere. The track appears on Obel’s upcoming album Citizen of Glass. Mew vocalist Jonas Bjerre, who directed the video, says: “I was honored to take on the task of making a video for this beautiful song. “The bells that emphasize the rhythm through the song, for some reason they made me think of blinking lights, and glass – glass being a recurring theme in Agnes’s new songs.
“As she told me more about the song, I started having ideas for some kind of internal world, maybe a world inside someone’s head, where various thoughts and feelings are in opposition, depicted as animated versions of Agnes, struggling to find harmony.”
‘Golden Green’ is taken from ‘Citizen of Glass’ released 21 October on Play It Again Sam. Agnes tours the UK in November:
- Nov 26 – Bristol, Anson Rooms
- Nov 27 – London, Shepherd’s Bush Empire
