Anohni's new video for "Marrow," a track from her HOPELESSNESS album, follows the same format as previous videos for "Crisis" and "I Don't Love You Anymore." The clip features New York City artist and feminist Lorraine O’Grady in a single shot, mouthing the words to the powerful track. "In the countryside, under the streams/ Suck the marrow out of her bones/ Suck the money out of her face/ We are all Americans now," Anohni sings.

Along with the video, Anohni shared a statement in solidarity with #NoDAPL activists in North Dakota. "Capitalism cares only for wealth extraction, from the earth and from its people," she wrote. "We are slaughtering the future. Only a wartime effort can save us now. Stand with the Water protectors in North Dakota. Which side you are on? History will remember all of our faces and exactly what each of us did or did not do. As a Native American elder fighting to stop the pipeline said yesterday, there is only one prayer left: save the earth." Watch Anohni's "Marrow" video above.
