Maya Hawke has shared a video for ‘Sweet Tooth’, the second single from her upcoming sophomore album MOSS. It follows the previously released track ‘Thérèse’. Check out the Celine Sutter-directed clip below.
“’Sweet Tooth’ was the last song written for MOSS,” Hawke said of the song in a statement. “The lyrics were written in Atlanta while filming, but Christian [Lee Hutson] and I recorded the first demo in Nashville. “When we finished the first recording session, I felt this eruption of joy and I knew this feeling had to be on the record.
Sutter added of the video: “‘Sweet Tooth’ was born out of conversations with Maya about the song, the album, and the unique feel of sweetness, cavity, death, and joy. We discussed care, caretaking, and childhood adult friendships. In the edit, we found the deconstructed nature of the dream with the behind-the-scenes footage – as if Maya was participating in the making of, and the theater of, her own funeral. ‘Sweet Tooth’ is a trippy, playful video that embraces the dichotomy of its themes: a joyful and melancholic funeral, a fake dream world with real footage, care and loneliness, sweetness and pain.”
MOSS is set for release on September 23 via Mom+Pop.
