Emmy The Great has uncovered the music video for "Swimming Pool", her latest single and lead track from the upcoming S EP.

The track features Tom Fleming of Wild Beasts. It depicts a hologram's "final interaction with its owner."

Recording took place in L.A., with Ludwig Goransson (Haim, Childish Gambino), and London, with Dave McCracken (Oh Land, Beyonce). M.I.A.’s MD Neil Comber mixed the recordings. Speaking about the EP, Emmy says:

“My previous recordings were a reflection of my internal world, but this is a record of me trying to engage with the outside. Over the course of travelling and touring for the last two years I inhabited many cities and landscapes. While I wrote this EP and the album that will follow, everything changed. As I wrote the songs I began to reflect more and more the world that I saw around me, incredibly bright, technologically breathtaking. I am curious about being a person in this world, and I tried to write that into the music.”

Watch "Swimming Pool" below.

The S EP is due 26 January on Bella Union.
