The track itself is a slow jam full of '80s keyboards, Mike WiLL Made-It production tags, and Cyrus' familiar calls. The video was directed by longtime collaborator, current backup band member, and Flaming Lips leader Wayne Coyne, who slathers Cyrus and a body-movin' neon druid in all sorts of splotchy, acid-dipped projections. These kaleidoscopic animations, meanwhile, were supplied by Jen Stark.
You wanna get higher with Cyrus? Then you can catch the video down below.
Cyrus' tour with her Dead Petz is ongoing, and hits Vancouver's Queen Elizabeth Theatre on December 14. You'll find the rest of the tour info here. According to a post from Cyrus, which contained the "Lighter" video, the opening show in Chicago last Thursday (November 19) was "totally turnt."
Fuck yeah! After our 1st show in Chicago (which was totally turnt) we loved seeing y'all singing along to all the Dead Petz jamsssss but seemed like this one was a fan favorite!!!!! For all of you who can't be with us in Detroit tonight and of course for all of you who will here is the official Lighter music video directed by me and Wayne Coyne featuring Jen Stark's bad ass animated kaleidoscopic projections!!!!!Posted by Miley Cyrus on Saturday, November 21, 2015
