nao make it out alive acoustic video sir

Nao is just a few weeks away from releasing her highly-anticipated sophomore album Saturn on October 26. So far, she has shared two singles from the project: the gorgeous “Another Lifetime” and “Make It Out Alive,” a collaboration with TDE’s SiR. It already received a visual treatment, but Nao has now shared a new visual for an acoustic version of the track. Watch its world premiere below.

Speaking on the new visual, Nao told Highsnobiety in an email that “We shot this in California whilst SiR was doing his scenes for the ‘Make It Out Alive’ video. A guitarist friend said he could come down and we had a behind the scenes cameraman with us so we just shot it off the cuff. We saw this amazing Ford Mustang and it had its lock smashed off so I didn’t think anyone would mind us sitting in it (if the owner of the car is watching, thank you)! I didn’t know it at the time but about 3 feet from where I’m singing here we later found a nest of black widow spiders, literally hundreds of them with their egg sacks and babies. So I really did only just make it out alive!”

Revisit the initial video for “Make It Out Alive” featuring SiR below.
