Yeah Yeah Yeahs have released a new music video for their Cool It Down song “Wolf.” The visual is directed by Allie Avital and stars Britt Lower from Apple TV+’s Severance as a wife sorting through feelings of confinement, wildness, and intimacy. Watch it below.
“It was our great fortune to collaborate with the powerhouses Allie and Brit on this video for ‘Wolf,’” Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O said in a statement. “Allie casts a spell with the gorgeous world she weaves- always with teeth that bite, and Britt embodies all the contradictions in the themes of ‘Wolf,’ so enamored with her performance that’s got as much heaven as it does hell. We were beside ourselves with excitement when Allie cast Brit as the lead in the video, YYYs are serious nerds for Severance, what luck when the stars align.”
Cool It Down is Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ fifth album and their first in nine years, following 2013’s Mosquito. The band’s latest LP was announced with the singles “Spitting Off the Edge of the World,” which includes guest contributions from Perfume Genius, and “Burning.” Recently, Yeah Yeah Yeahs stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform the latter song from atop a crumbling block of lava.
