Bon Iver has released Naeem, the band’s first official, non-lyrical music video since 2012’s Beth/Rest.
The film marks Bon Iver’s first collaboration with Los Angeles-based, Barcelona-born director, AG Rojas, who – after travelling the world as the child of a Colombian writer and Costa Rican painter – has credits including Gil Scott-Heron’s last and Earl Sweatshirt’s first music videos. He has also directed pieces for Kamasi Washington, Florence + The Machine, Emeli Sandé, Run The Jewels, and Zack de la Rocha.
Rojas says, “Naeem is concerned with the potential for intergenerational healing, and how we choose to engage with that potential. All my admiration and love to Cynthia Rodriguez and her child Azul who brought this idea to life, and to Bon Iver for amplifying it.”
