Paris Jackson Pays Tribute To Nirvana’s ‘Sliver’ In New ‘Lighthouse’ Video

The new visual for Paris Jackson‘s “Lighthouse,” released recently, sees the singer paying tribute to Nirvana‘s “Sliver” video.

The video, directed by Johann Rashid, finds Jackson and her band rocking out in a knickknack-filled basement that features magazine cutouts on the wall. A photo of Kurt Cobain appears as well at one point, referencing the “Sliver” connection.

“I continued to write about this same old heartbreak that [2020 debut album] ‘Wilted’ is about,” Jackson said, connecting the dots between her debut album and her latest track. “A lot of the new songs coming out are similar stories about the same person and heartbreak. I guess I’m just exploring different feelings. ‘Wilted’ was a more melancholy record, and now I’m exploring more of the anger.”

“I can feel the lights go low/ But I don’t wanna let go now/ Maybe if I turn around, you’ll see me/ And what you used to be/ Your wave keeps crashing in a changeless sea/ And I can’t help but feel it’s drowning me/ No, I can’t breathe/ The oil’s burnt in the lighthouse, my ship wrecked on your teeth,” Jackson sings over powerful distorted guitar riffs.

“Lighthouse” is the lead single off Jackson’s forthcoming as-yet-untitled EP. She released her debut studio album Wilted in 2020 and her The Lost EP earlier this year.
