This is excellent! Real art for a change, in a style that supports the song instead of distracting from it.

All of her videos prior to July of 2014 were beautifully-stage "performance" videos which showed off her once-every-100-years singing voice.
Her latest release is more artistic, and includes amazing cutout animation that goes along with her new single "The Rains of Castamere".

Her second 2014 music video "Go Time"(for Justice girls clothing) is just plain fun!
Keep an eye out for the music video of "Think Of Me". It won't be set in the Phantom's Opera House.
