Korean-American singer Audrey Nuna has returned with a new single entitled “Locket.” Following her 2021 debut album, a liquid breakfast, and last year’s deluxe version, she’s preparing to put out another full-length project. Last month, she kicked off the roll out with the punchy “IdgaF.”

The eclectic, trap-inspired “Locket” arrives with a music video directed by the late French director Valentin Petit, who tragically passed away in a plane crash earlier this year. Nuna first encountered Petit’s work in A$AP Ferg’s “Floor Seats” video years before ever meeting him.

When it came time for “Locket” to get the visual treatment, she reached out to Petit directly. After two months of corresponding and preparing online, the two met up in Paris in April to shoot the video. Set in an art gallery, Nuna performs as the world moves on at high speed around her, occasionally pausing to dance or snap a selfie with her friends.

“Even though I only knew Valentin for a sum of three months, I found in this short time that everything that drew me to his videos clearly stemmed from the blueprint of his soul and who he was at his core,” Nuna said of their partnership. “I’m honored to have worked with him and been inspired by him as a fellow artist. I’m just as honored to have gotten to know him as a person; his honesty, the undying and selfless passion he had for the craft, his free spirit and anti-gravity, his love and respect of people and adventure.”

“He was gifted in all the ways his work vividly illustrated, and with such a sense of refreshing humility towards his collaborators and crew that can often times feel rare to find in this industry.”
