WATCH: Phoebe Bridgers Debuts “Garden Song,” feat. Dense Cloud of Weed Smoke

Her first solo single since 2017’s Stranger in the Alps arrives ahead of tours with The National and The 1975.

Phoebe Bridgers has used boygenius and Better Oblivion Community Center to distract us in 2018 and 2019, respectively, from the fact that she’s yet to follow up her critically acclaimed, oft-cried-to debut Stranger in the Alps. While there’s still no word on that follow up, Bridgers is giving us something to tide us over as she travels the world opening for pretty-big-deal bands The 1975 and The National.

“Garden Song” debuted today with a video directed by Phoebe’s brother Jackson, pitting the songwriter’s earnest balladry against her truly bizarre sense of humor. Following a particularly potent bong hit, Bridgers performs the track as her demons (?) dance around her in an unvanishing cloud of pot smoke (BTW, that’s Tig Notaro dressed as a monk in the background). Evidently the goings-on of the video weren’t revealed to Phoebe, who doesn’t smoke, beforehand, making the clip just as surprising for her. Watch the trippy video below. 

“Garden Song” is out now via Dead Oceans—stream it here, and catch Bridger’s full tour schedule below.
