The year's most important pop star Kim Petras has released a new video for her Lil Aaron-assisted single, "Faded" — a glossy synth-driven bop about the singer's carefree LA lifestyle. "I ain't gonna lie," Petras sings. "I'm faded out my mind/ Faded every night."
Directed by Nicholas Harwood (SOPHIE, Blood Orange, Porches), the "Faded" visual features Petras dancing in front of her own face plastered on a giant wall behind her (because, why tf not). The video was designed to reflect the style of '90s teen sitcoms, and sees Petras wearing a ton of incredible looks (Christian Cowan, MarryMe-JimmyPaul, Chromat).
Describing her forthcoming debut album, Kim Petras told PAPER it looks back on the last 5 years of her life — "my experiences, my heartbreak, my fantasies. It's very inspired by nostalgia, by nostalgic pop," she said. "I love Queen, The Cardigans, a lot of Italian '80s disco. Also living on Hollywood Boulevard for awhile, struggling in LA, songs that match where I go out at."
