Anticipation continues to mount for the release of future bass powerhouse Alison Wonderland’s new AWAKE LP, following the respective releases of her first couple of singles, “No” and “Church.” Arriving as the third single off her forthcoming sophomore studio album comes the ambient single, “High,” featuring Ohio-based rapper Trippie Redd. The track is accompanied by a mood-enhancing video featuring Alison Wonderland and Trippie Redd at the center. It was self-directed by Alison Wonderland, with cinematography from Jeffrey Zoss.
“It was a real pleasure to work with Trippie,” Alison Wonderland says of the release. “It is important to vibe with an artist before we collaborate. When he heard this song, it was very organic, and he jumped in the booth and we walked out feeling that we had something special. I felt like this song had a certain spirit and wanted people to feel like they were going on a journey with us….just like when watching the music video.”
The visual aesthetic of the video perfectly encapsulates the chill, stoner mood set by the song’s lyrical content, with both producer and rapper swaying against a colorful floral background as glitchy jump cuts keep viewers on their toes. Quite unexpectedly, the video starkly transitions to an animated storyline (c/o Jayme Lemperle and Evan Red Borja) at Wonderland’s unusual and unique drop, pulling listeners into a completely different universe that is assuredly a snapshot of her mind.
Due out April 6 on Astralwerks, AWAKE is the follow-up to Alison Wonderland’s 2015 debut album, Run, which entered Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart at No. 1.
