Soko told Janelle Okwodu of Vogue where the idea came from for the Gia Coppola-directed video for "Are You a Magician?". "Gia came to visit, and we were sitting on my baby's bed, listening to the song, and we both went: 'I have an idea.' 'What's yours?' 'No, say yours first.' 'No, you!' It turned out all the images we had in mind were totally part of the same world and we could make it all work together. I imagined a story where I make a toy that I fall more and more in love with and try to turn it into a human-like Pinocchio, but I run out of magic tricks and I'm left with reality."

ARE YOU A MAGICIAN?

SOKO

You can sweet talk me
Into just about anything
Now I'm getting used
To the shape of your face
O, what a blessing
I will cut your fingernails
And wash you up
I will let you slowly
Suck on my toe
Now I'm getting used
To the sounds that you make
O, what a blessing
Are you a liar?
Are you a magician?
How did you disappear?
Where did you go?
How did you just disappear?
You can sweet talk me
You can make me
Slowly forget myself
But now I'm crying
Out to the music you make
O, what a pity
Are you a liar?
Are you a magician?
How…
