The clip was directed by Jason Lester and comprises one long shot in an empty theater with Bridgers singing as she roams from a plush backstage area through fluorescent-lit halls, finally appearing on the stage. As “I Know the End” reaches its grand finale, Bridgers’ band even appears on a screen behind her while she leaps around and roses rain down on her.
Bridgers has turned in a handful of unique quarantine performances this year. Earlier this month, she recorded a set for NPR’s Tiny Desk series in a mock-up of the Oval Office; in July she turned her home into a karaoke room for a rendition of “Kyoto” on The Late Show; while in April she performed the same song on Kimmel while in her bathtub. Also, in lieu of an actual tour, Bridgers live-streamed a handful of performances from her house, with each “show” taking place in a different room.
Bridgers released Punisher in June. The album follows her 2017 debut, Stranger in the Alps.
