Allday Heads Back Home With The Veronicas For New "Restless" Video

He premieres the video exclusively via NYLON

Ahead of the release of his third album, Starry Night Over the Phone, Aussie singer-songwriter Allday headed back home to get a little more inspiration and wound up with a music video. Earlier this month, Allday released his latest single "Restless," featuring The Veronicas; today, he premieres the accompanying visuals exclusively via NYLON.

"I went back to Adelaide, my hometown, to shoot all the videos for this album, and I wanted to capture the desolation and boredom of the place," Allday tells us. He adds, "Growing up in a boring place was fantastic for me because it sparked my imagination; where I'm from is really important to me. We used that as inspiration, and exaggerated a lot of the light and dark aspects of the place for this video."

And, hey, we get it: With no one around, nothing to do, it's hard not to get antsy—especially at a party, where it's just you, your drink, and a couple of locals making out in the opposite corner.

Earlier this year, The Veronicas launched themselves into a new era with breakup bop "Think of Me." But "Restless" is a different musical approach to relationship troubles, for sure, with Allday's underlying hip-hop baseline and chill arrangement making it sound unlike anything else they've done before.

Starry Night Over The Phone is set for July 12 release, just before Allday heads out on tour across Australia and the U.S. Check the visuals for "Restless" and all the opportunities to catch Allday live below.

We're shook and shaking our heads

Awards season is indeed on the horizon. Today the nominees for the 71st annual Emmy Award nominations were announced, crowning the best in television programming over the past year—from June 1, 2018, through May 31, 2019, specifically. For some performers, creators, crews, networks, and fans, this is a time for celebration and congratulations. For others, it's a moment of disappointment; or at the very least, an opportunity to complain a little bit.

Here are my snubs, surprises, and the nominations that I'm so excited about I could scream.

Snub: Tracee Ellis-Ross in 'black-ish'

Three-time Emmy nominee Tracee Ellis-Ross was not nominated for her role in black-ish, and I would like to speak to the manager.

Snub: 'The Masked Singer'

The Masked Singer might seem gimmicky, but it's actually really good and has shaken up the monotony of other singing competition shows. Unfortunately, that wasn't enough for the Emmy voters.

Surprise: 'Surviving R. Kelly'

I was admittedly surprised to see Surviving R. Kelly validated as one of the most impactful docu-series of the year. It has changed the conversation about sexual assault and grooming and added pressure to law enforcement to hold the singer accountable. It was nominated for Best Informational Series or Special.

Snub: Julia Roberts in 'Homecoming'

Julia Roberts stepped off of her well-established film actress pedestal to bring a PODCAST to life, and this is the thanks she gets? She killed it in Homecoming, and yet it didn't get a single nomination.

Surprise: Beyoncé's 'Homecoming'

Speaking of Homecoming, Beyoncé's Netflix documentary about her 2018 Coachella performance—which doubled as a tribute to HBCUs—was nominated for Best Variety Special. All she has to do is win this, snag an Oscar for The Lion King soundtrack, and put Broadway in her GPS, and Beyhive, we have ourselves an EGOT!

Snub: 'Gentleman Jack'

Gentleman Jack didn't get a single nomination. It hasn't even been a full month since Pride, and we're already shitting on gay rights. Wow.

Snub: 'Grace & Frankie'

I know that Grace & Frankie went off the rails a little bit this year, so I get the show being absent from the Best Comedy Series category. But for neither Lily Tomlin or Jane Fonda to be recognized just feels… wrong.

Snub: 'American Horror Story: Apocalypse'

Jessica Lange is that bitch and deserves her nomination for returning to American Horror Story: Apocalypse. But Evan Peters should have received some recognition for wearing that terrible wig while he played a Satan-worshipping tech bro; Sarah Paulson carried the show; and nothing but respect to MY antichrist, Cody Fern.

Snub: 'Haunting of Hill House'

Another horror series that deserved a chance this year was Haunting of Hill House. It was scary as hell, but also a great drama about a family dealing with grief and trauma. It could be that the Emmy voters were too damn terrified to make it to the end, though. Fair.

Surprise: Billy Porter in 'Pose'

Billy Porter got a Lead Actor nomination for Pose, and I can't think of anyone more deserving. I can't wait to see what he wears on award night.

Surprise: Jharrel Jerome In 'When They See Us'

It cannot be understated how much Jharrel Jerome deserves his nomination for Lead Actor in a Limited Drama Series. His performance in Ava DuVernay's When They See Us still haunts me.

Surprise: Kit Harington In 'Game of Thrones'

Now we know

Katy Perry has revealed the methods she uses to prevent looking like she's "getting older," and they might surprise you. The singer doesn't rely on a great face mask or a new treatment. Nope, she does "lots of enemas" instead. Personally, I would rather age gracefully with whatever wrinkles come my way than inject liquid into my anus, but what do I know?

The secret is fruit

Timeless beauty and bop-creator Myá opened up about her skin routine with Chili in an exclusive interview for VH1's Girls Cruise, and now I'm convinced that I've been wasting my produce all along. It turns out that the R&B icon is a DIY beauty queen and experiments with various fruits and vegetables. "For my masks, I use pure avocado and mango" she shares, which she credits with her firm, moisturized skin.

Does anyone actually buy this stuff?!

Rachel Dolezal, a white woman who defended her choice to pretend to be Black by saying she "identifies" as Black, apparently also identifies as a capitalist. She's selling merchandise that she's made, featuring photos of herself. And, let me tell you, the designs are truly something to behold.

This suit is everything

Ariana Grande's campaign visuals for Givenchy have finally been revealed, and they're absolutely flawless. Grande rocks a range of looks, including one particularly stunning emerald green power suit with sculpted shoulders that give me life. While the singer's butt-length extensions stole all the attention in the teasers, that's not the case for the campaign. (Though, admittedly, her pony looks sleek as always.)
