Paul Thomas Anderson Directed Joanna Newsom’s Music Video

“Inherent Vice” director Paul Thomas Anderson and Joanna Newsom are teaming up once again. This time, the duo has collaborated on Newsom’s new music video.

Anderson helmed the video for the first single, “Sapokanikan,” off of Newsom’s upcoming 11-track album, “Divers.”

Newsom walks through New York City in the wintertime in the clip, which ends with her disappearing into the night.

Although best known for his work as a filmmaker, Anderson has directed several music vids, most of them for his ex-girlfriend Fiona Apple (“Paper Bag,” “Limp,” “Fast as You Can” and “Across the Universe”), and a handful for frequent collaborators Aimee Mann, Michael Penn and Join Brion.

Newsom’s first album in five years arrives on October 23.
