Swedish sister alt-country/folk duo First Aid Kit are releasing a new album, Ruins, on January 19, 2018 via Columbia. Now they have shared a video for "Fireworks." Mats Udd directed the video that features the sisters attending, dancing, and performing at a 1980s prom, complete with big hairdos and vintage prom dresses. They interact with bored dates and one gets crowned the prom queen. Watch it below.

The duo previously shared Ruins track "It's a Shame," as well as a video for the song inspired by the Gwyneth Paltrow romantic comedy from 1998, Sliding Doors. Plus there was a lyric video for "Postcard" and another lyric video for "Fireworks."

Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, Laura Veirs) produced the album in Portland, OR. The album features R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, Wilco's Glenn Kotche, and Midlake's McKenzie Smith. Ruins is the follow-up to 2014's acclaimed Stay Gold. Back in March First Aid Kit shared another new song, "You Are the Problem Here," in honor of International Women's Day.
