Yaeji shares new single and music video for ‘Passed Me By’

On Friday Yaeji’s highly-anticipated, debut album With A Hammer will be available globally. Today Yaeji shares a new single and music video for “Passed Me By”, a hypnotic track that sees the artist addressing her younger self in a new music video directed by Enayet and Zanzie.

Watch the video for “Passed Me By”:

“One of the most pivotal songs for her on With a Hammer is “Passed Me By,” in which she sings a line in Korean: 못 알아볼 뻔했어 (“I almost didn’t recognize you”). She says the line is directed toward her younger self. “She’s always been looking at me, but I was always averting my gaze and rejecting her existence,” she explains. “And this is the moment I lock eyes with her, and I’m like, You’re there. I see you.” – New York Magazine

With A Hammer is a daring statement of emotional evolution. Singles “For Granted,” “Done (Let’s Get It)” and “Passed Me By” are an introductory snapshot of the shapeshifting sonics on With A Hammer, that follow Yaeji’s journey as she wades through the murkiness of sorrow and doubt and releases the frenzy of anger, with the help of a metaphorical hammer—which she wields to smash the rigid rules, expectations, and barriers that prevented her from speaking her fullest truth. Through this transformative process, she eventually meets the thrilling self-determination and hope that awaits on the other side.
