Tender but devastating, “Highway to Your Heart” allows Li to mourn a lost love with slow, simmering keys and reverberating harmonies. “Night falls, it rains, I wake up alone,” she chants. At this point, loneliness is a routine: “Get high but it won’t last/ I’m still alone.” The single comes with an equally dramatic video directed by Theo Lindquist, which sees the artist engulfed in a mix of flames and rain following a car accident.
While Li previously shared a teaser of EYEYE’s visual component, “Highway to Your Heart” offers listeners the first complete video from the album, which features several clips directed by Lindquist and shot on 16-millimeter film by cinematographer Edu Grau. Li likened the project to “listening to a voice memo on a macro dose of LSD,” so you know it’s going to be good.
Li first previewed EYEYE with the single “NO HOTEL.”
