HANA has shared a new video for 'Anxious Alien', plus a new AI thing that sounds both amazing and quite weird tbh...

HANA has shared a new video for 'Anxious Alien', directed by Logan Fields.

“I wrote this song while streaming live on my twitch channel," she says. "I took suggestions from people on themes they wanted me to write about and one of the most common suggestions was social media.

"This song is a Jekyll and Hyde moment of my album HANADRIEL, about how social media can provide confidence and a needed outlet but also occasionally be the catalyst for deep depression."

Alongside the release, HANA has teamed up with 1RIC and Jadu, an iOS app that allows fans to record a performance of ‘Anxious Alien’ alongside a three-dimensional hologram of HANA in the comfort of their own home.

A press release explains: "Jadu’s platform unlocks an unprecedented opportunity for artists to explore AR in a way that allows them to continue to perform, while breaking down barriers for fans and encouraging a whole new form of shareable, user-generated content.

"Fans can choose from a library of photorealistic holograms of different musicians, scan their surroundings and place the hologram in their space using AR. Users then enter the frame with their favorite artist and record a video as they perform with the hologram.

"The resulting video can be saved to their device and shared on TikTok, Instagram or any other social media website."

So there you go. Check out 'Anxious Alien' below.
