Sky Ferreira has premiered the music video for “Sad Dream,” the opening track from her just-released Ghost EP. If you’re expecting the synth-pop sultriness of “Everything Is Embarrassing” or the angsty crunch of “Red Lips,” well, this is from yet another section of the pop chameleon’s palette. But like those other two videos, this one features Sky’s pouty lips and puppy dog eyes staring achingly at the camera. In addition to the video, Sky unveiled a small string of tour dates, which you can see after the jump.
Directed by Grant Singer, who was behind the camera for her “Everything” clip, this video finds Ferreira and her beau living the range life — driving a pickup truck, shooting guns, stealing liquor, staying in a tacky motel room, etc. The modern western setting fits with the simply strummed song. In fact, the only thing keeping it from being a country-pop crossover is Sky’s breathy, twang-free vocal delivery.
