The emotionally dark video was shot in Nashville and directed by Eric Welch, who has also shot music clips for Steve Holy ("Love Don't Run
") and Lee Brice "I Drive Your Truck
The visual shows Farr trapped in a glass case that fills with smoke and water. Farr explained that going through old videos from Nine Inch Nails helped influence the music clip's aesthetic. ""I chose to record 'Withdrawals' because of its raw emotion," he said. "So when I was trying to come up with a concept that would fit the song perfectly, I wanted the video to reflect the anguish of the lyrics."
"When we were trying to come up with visuals to help explain the emotion, we looked at footage of Trent Reznor performances in NIN music videos, art galleries of people in glass boxes, and then tried our best to put those against the lyrics of the song," Farr continued. "What came out in the end is exactly what I had in my head."
