The music video follows his short film, titled Stranger
Earlier this month, rapper Yung Lean released his critically acclaimed third album Stranger, which he then followed with a short film of the same name. His latest visual, a music video for his song “Metallic Intuition”, just dropped too – and it’s a bloody, messy, western prequel to “Stranger”.
The video is set “The Day After the Massacre”, and sees Lean reprising his role as the traumatised “The Wanted Man”, a fugitive the run from authorities. It explains the story behind the gruesome events of “Stranger”, but it doesn’t quite give everything away; perhaps there’s a third instalment coming?
Make-up artist Isamaya Ffrench, known for her work with YSL and Tom Ford, makes an appearance in the visual, tending to Lean and winding up gruesomely dying on the steps of a cabin in the desert.
