Fresh from premiering "Temples," a booming M.I.A and G-Dragon collaboation at Alexander Wang's New York Fashion Week show on Sunday, Baauer has released the visuals for "Day Ones," the lead single from his upcoming record Aa. Helmed by Hiro Murai, the surrealist director behind clips for Earl Sweatshirt and David Guetta, the video sees a force of Revolutionary troops invade the streets of modern America while English MC Novelist spits rhymes from the hood of a nearby Sedan.


As battle commences, masked N.Y. rapper Leikeli47 appears. And when you in your hood and everybody counting cream/I'm talking cash ruling everything around me/Still riding with your day ones?/Let me hear you scream! she commands, gunshots puncturing the air around her and shattering inexplicably hung chandeliers. Check out the clip above via Apple Music, and revisit The FADER's recent interview with Baauer.
