Sasami has returned with a new single, Honeycrash.

The epic rock ballad marks the Los Angeles musician's first new music since the release of her second album, 'Squeeze', in 2022. 

Head below to view the song's accompanying video, directed by Andrew Thomas Huang. Sasami explained in a statement:

"I wanted to write a song with all the drama of a 19th century classical opera but with the patience and understanding of someone in therapy in 2024. Finding a love so great you're willing to persist through the elements, even toward certain death to bear its ravishment. It's about wanting to fight for the pinnacle of passion and desire but knowing that you can’t change or rush someone else’s feelings or where they're at.

"But with a guitar as my sword and my steed. I have been so fortunate to find a collaborator in Andrew, and together we made a sexy little drama of our own. The Honeycrash video is a peek into the new world that I have been building and teasing out on stage. I am really thrilled to unleash this first of many new songs in an era of melodrama, romance, and hooks of course."

"When I first heard Honeycrash I was moved by the thunderous romanticism and cinematic scope of Sasami's new sonic direction," added Andrew Thomas Huang ." After long conversations about the pop focus of her new album, I wanted to create a video for her that felt big, sweeping and sexy while showcasing her performance as the highlight of the piece. I wanted to create a video that evoked themes and images such as runaway fugitives, rogue sisterhood, distressed denim, rugged natural elements, primal rage, Thelma and Louise, tsunamis, tornadoes, blazing sunsets, sci-fi apocalyptic visions of the American West, and passionate ‘I would die for you’ level romance. 

"Achieving this vision on a budget was ambitious but made possible by filming on a volume LED stage and relying on the use of epic stock footage to set the scene for the backdrop of Sasami's new universe," he continued. "I am honored to collaborate with Sasami again on this new journey and am smitten by the world she is heralding with her new sound and vision."

Sasami will support DIIV on the Brooklyn band's summer US tour between June 5 and 16.
