Poppy Is Sharing Strange Teaser Videos That Likely Hint at Her Next Era
Poppy has started releasing strange teaser videos that presumably point to her next artistic era and possibly a new album.
The first, titled "Glass," was released on Dec. 21, 2021, and it shows Poppy taking a sip from a teacup before smashing it on the ground. A follow-up clip, "Blow Away," emerged on Dec. 26 and shows the singer sitting on the floor while languidly smoking a cigarette. A third and perhaps final teaser, "Dessert," followed in early January 2022 — it shows a knife-wielding Poppy slowly spinning around while she holds a slice of cake.
Watch the videos down toward the bottom of this post.
All three clips are soundtracked by ominous electronic tones. The videos have been shared on Poppy's YouTube channel as well as her social media outlets.
As noted by NME, some Poppy fans have pointed out the new clips' similarity to a series of shorts she uploaded to YouTube in 2018, just ahead of the release of her sophomore studio album, Am I a Girl?
It's currently unclear if the recent videos are related to Poppy's new metaverse app, PoppySphere. Poppy's latest album, the rock-driven Flux, arrived in September, backed by singles such as "Her" and the title track. She recently completed a tour in the U.S. and will play Europe in 2022. In October, Poppy filled her Amoeba Records bag with doom and black metal.
