Rina Sawayama has returned with a time-warping music video for the title track of her forthcoming sophomore album, Hold The Girl.

The visual, directed by Ali Kurr, sees the Japanese-British artist trapped in a 19th-century farmhouse until she is ultimately able to free herself from a time loop. ”Sometimes I just wanna run away / Leave behind that old me, start again,” she sings on the introspective cut. “Then I’ll remember who I’m really made of / And she’s been hide-and-seeking, waiting all alone.”

On the track’s creation, Sawayama explained in a statement, “I had gone to therapy and had a revelation, so I decided to write this song…that was the start of it. I was crying before going into the studio.” The accompanying video serves to represent Sawayama’s personal journey of realizing her self-worth, which inspired the track.

Hold The Girl, which follows 2020’s Sawayama, is slated for release on September 16. Following the record’s release, Sawayama will embark on a U.S. tour in November, with stops in Brooklyn, Boston, Atlanta, Nashville, Dallas, Austin, Los Angeles and several other cities. Tickets are available on the artist’s official website.
