Director Petra Collins opens on a seemingly normal suburban street, where the singer walks by carrying bags of groceries. She approaches a house, nestled next to a recently crashed car, and the clip grows more absurd from there: Inside the home, Gomez eats soap, ties a knot of string around her tongue and writhes around on the kitchen floor.
“Take it or leave it/ Baby, take it or leave it,” she sings over minimalist electro-pop production. “But I know you won’t leave it, ’cause I know that you need it/ Look in the mirror/ When I look in the mirror, baby, I see it clearer/ Why you want to be nearer.”
“Fetish,” which Gomez released in mid-July, follows her Talking Heads-sampling single “Bad Liar.” The singer has yet to announce the follow-up to her 2015 LP, Revival, or indicate whether these songs will appear on an album.
Last year, Gomez announced plans for a career hiatus to deal with lupus side effects, including “anxiety, panic attacks and depression.”
