Phoebe Bridgers shares the Nina Ljeti-directed greenscreen video for new jam "Kyoto", taken from her forthcoming new album Punisher -- which also includes the gorgeous and haunting "Garden Song" -- coming this summer on Dead Oceans. Bridgers says about the track:

“This song is about impostor syndrome. About being in Japan for the first time, somewhere I’ve always wanted to go, and playing my music to people who want to hear it, feeling like I’m living someone else’s life. I dissociate when bad things happen to me, but also when good things happen. It can feel like I’m performing what I think I’m supposed to be like. I wrote this one as a ballad first, but at that point I was so sick of recording slow songs, it turned into this.”

Punisher is out June 19th.
