There Are No Shortcuts To “Stay Happy” In Au/Ra’s New Video
Au/Ra had a productive September. She dropped a new single called “Stay Happy,” performed her first headlining shows in North America and made a cameo at TwitchCon. It looks like the rest of the year is going to be just as hectic. The 17-year-old has a new song on the Death Stranding: Timefall soundtrack (a collaboration with Alan Walker, no less) and just released a video for “Stay Happy.” The latter finds the Antiguan pop star trying a bunch of life hacks in a bid to brighten her mood. Unfortunately, none of them work.
“The video for ‘Stay Happy’ is definitely very different from my other videos,” Au/Ra revealed when I interviewed her in a couple of weeks ago. “It’s a bit more stylized, but in a quirky way. It’s basically me exploring different, stereotypical ways of to try to make myself feel happy. Whereas, you see through the setups, that I’m sabotaging myself the entire time.” Watch the pop star’s new video below.
