Brutal, painful and heartbreaking are the best words to describe Spiritualized's new video for "Hey Jane," the first single from their upcoming album Sweet Heart Sweet Light.

The 10-minute short film, directed by AG Rojas, highlights the life of a drag queen, whose stripping and prostitution leads to a wince-inducing 5-minute tracking shot detailing a bloody, violent showdown with her antagonist. So yeah, as if you didn't know, this is definitely NSFW. Rojas is no stranger to confrontational, wincing videos, having previously helmed the fingernail-picking classic "Earl" by Earl Sweatshirt, but this one trumps that both technically and emotionally. Check it out now.
