Sky Ferreira is spreading season’s greetings…

The 22-year-old part-Brazilian singer-songwriter, who recently previewed new single “Guardian,” has released a new music video for her Japanese Christmas-themed song “Omanko” just in time for the holidays.

The lo-fi clip, directed by Ferreira’s boyfriend Zachary Cole Smith of rock band DIIV, features silly homemade videos of Ferreira spliced with footage of her onstage performances.

“The Omanko video was just ton of footage @DIIV & I made (originally without any intention of making anything out of it).U know…for fun?!” Ferreira wrote in a tweet on Saturday (Dec. 20).

“Omanko” is from Ferreira’s debut album, Night Time, My Time, which was released in late 2013 on Capitol Records. She is currently working on her second album with Primal Scream‘s Bobby Gillespie and Andrew Innes.

Ferreira shared the “Omanko” video through Twitter over the weekend and then later wrote that she originally set out to make “official videos for most of the songs on the record,” but didn’t get the budget she needed from her representatives.

“It’s a shame. Because labels/managers etc don’t think it’s necessary unless it’s a single,” Ferreira tweeted.
