Tame Impala and Zhu released the single “My Life” earlier this year and have now premiered the video.
According to Pitchfork, the video directed by American Millennial’s Ben Tan and David Altobelli along with Elliot Sellers, stars Willow Smith as a teenager who has survived a horrific car accident.
The video opens to the sound of sirens and an image of a car accident with two unconscious victims in the back seat. Smith’s character appears, stumbling and bloodied, the sole survivor of the crash. As she walks away from the accident to find help, the video flashes back to happier memories and the events leading up to the accident. Watch the video below.

After taking a hiatus from performing, Tame Impala returned to the stage with a performance at this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago.
