Yung Lean’s video for the FKA twigs-featured track “Bliss” showed his campy side, but the newly released video for “Paradise Lost” (featuring Ant Wan) goes the opposite route. The Marcus Söderlund-directed video takes on a neo-goth aesthetic, with the Swedish rapper and Ant Wan in a wooden chapel and a dimly-lit underground garage.
The darker artistic direction of the video matches the heaviness of Lean’s introspective words: “Found my way to Heaven, I just don’t know how to get in / Dancing with the devil and sometimes I think I met him / Livin’ these last years like I was Terminator, in and out / Some people stopped counting on me, so you know I had to count ’em out.”
The song appears on Lean’s mixtape Stardust, which was released back in April. Watch the video for it above.
