The video for Monsoon, directed by Joe Alexander, follows Mark and her late mother’s travels through India. Speaking to Fader, the singer said “When I wrote "Monsoon," I always imagined the music video being shot in India. The song had so much to do with my time in India with my mother as well as leaving her in India during the monsoon season to visit my family in NY. It really was a dream come true when I was given the opportunity to shoot in India."
