Billie Eilish has returned with a brand new Takashi Murakami visual for “you should see me in a crown.” The new music video features animation by the famed artist’s art production and management company, Kaikai Kiki. More specifically Studio PONCOTAN, the company’s film and TV division, headed the visual’s art direction and production.

Utilizing an array of 3D computer graphics, effects, and animation, Eilish’s newest video stays true to her darker, more melancholic focused tonality. Relishing in a variety of horrorcore visuals she’s become known for – she turns into a spider-like being with a human head, looking straight out of a Japanese anime. Featured in the video are various Murakami references from flowers to other subtle references that incorporate his iconic Pop Art color-layering.

This isn’t the first time the two parties have collaborated, earlier this year the duo’s off-kilter work doused the cover of GARAGE MAGAZINE’s Issue 16.

The teaser trailer for Billie Eilish’s visual for “you should see me in a crown” is located above. Currently, the music video is exclusive to Apple Music — if you have an account you can view it here.
