New Zealand singer/songwriter Aldous Harding released a new album, Designer, back in April via 4AD. Now she has shared a strange video for the album's "Zoo Eyes." Harding co-directed the video with Martin Sagadin and it was filmed in her native country. It partly finds Harding on a cloudy hilltop dressed almost like a clown, with two weird figures either side of her. Of the video, a press release says: "Harding simultaneously compels and bewilders in 'Zoo Eyes' as she takes on multiple identities." Watch it below, followed by her upcoming tour dates.

Read our interview with Aldous Harding on Designer.

Previously Harding shared a strange video for Designer's first single, "Barrel" (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Then she shared another song from the album, opening track "Fixture Picture," also via a video for the song. Harding co-directed the striking video with Jack Whiteley, which was filmed on the Cliffs of Dover in England and featured Harding dressed in bright red, while her all-male backing band are all clad in black, sometimes with their faces covered. "Fixture Picture" was also one of our Songs of the Week. When the album was released title track "Designer" was also one of our Songs of the Week. Then she stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to make her U.S. late night TV debut and perform "The Barrel."

Designer is the follow-up to 2017's Party. As with that album, John Parish produces again. The album also features Huw Evans (H. Hawkline), Stephen Black (Sweet Baboo), drummer Gwion Llewelyn, and violinist Clare Mactaggart.
