Bon Iver's New "Naeem" Video Stars an Omniscient Floating Rock
It marks the project's first proper music video since 2012
Published Nov 21, 2019After teasing something mysterious last night on Twitter, Bon Iver have shared some brand new visuals, making for the project's first proper music video since 2012.
"Naeem" — a i,i favourite — is the latest subject of Justin Vernon's ceaseless artistic vision, with writer/director AG Rojas at the helm for a stunning new official music video, which stars Cynthia Rodriguez, Azul Rodriguez, David Orellana, David Gonzalez Rojas and Christa Haxthausen alongside a giant floating rock.
The video shows a woman and child interacting with a divine rock formation, anointing themselves in its mystical blessing water — or something.
Here's what Rojas had to say about the work:
"Naeem" is concerned with the potential for intergenerational healing, and how we choose to engage with that potential. All my admiration and love to Cynthia Rodriguez and her child Azul who brought this idea to life, and to Bon Iver for amplifying it.
i,i was just nominated for multiple Grammy Awards, including Best Album of the Year. The album was released back in August.
