SASAMI (aka Los Angeles based musician Sasami Ashworth) released her self-titled debut album, SASAMI, last month via Domino. Now she has shared a video for the album's "Morning Comes" that features her grandmother hosting a cooking show where she teaches you to make kimichi. Ashworth co-directed the video with Eric Notarnicola (Nathan For You, Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Who Is America?). Watch it below, followed by her upcoming tour dates.

Ashworth had this to say about the video in a press release: "'Morning Comes' is the first song with lyrics I ever wrote and recorded. I wrote it at the beginning of a year's cycle of sentiments and emotional convictions. It marked a (fleeting) chapter of independence, confidence, and feeling in control. This was soon followed by many lapses in said control and emotional strength (hence every other song on the album lol). It seemed fitting to make a music video featuring the most stable and strong person I know - my grandmother (Halmoni). She is a boss ass bitch and makes truly the most epic kimchi on planet earth. Watch the video for yourself and visit her shop in LA if you really want to know the TRUTH."

Read our recent Pleased to Meet You interview with SASAMI.

When the album was announced she shared a self-directed video for the new song "Jealousy," which was one of our Songs of the Week. Then she shared a video for another new song from the album, "Free." The song featured backing vocals from Devendra Banhart, although he's not in the video, and was also one of our Songs of the Week. The album includes the previous singles "Not the Time" and "Callous."
