An innovative video for title track ‘Animal Heart’ has been released, premiered via Stereogum, which follows Nina around a seemingly ‘normal day’, Stereogum explains below.
“The video follows Persson as she goes through a seemingly “normal” day, but as if on a film set; while she descends the steps of a Brooklyn-esque brownstone and fetches milk from the nearby market, “crew” members undress and redress her, a dance posse trails behind, and people carry backdrops to match the scenes in her lyrics. In her familiar pop soprano she cries “come be my man, babe hang on to me” over a twinkling synth.” – Stereogum
