WATCH: Vanessa Carlton Debuts 'Operator' Video


The singer says the song is about seduction, and the genders can easily be changed.

Singer-songwriter Vanessa Carlton has shared a dark video for her new single, "Operator."

The singer, who came out as bisexual in 2010, told Billboardthe song is about an older woman seducing a younger man, but added that its story is not gender-specific.

"She 'operates' the way things happen around her to benefit herself," Carlton said of the song's subject. "That's what operators do. Also, the song happens to be about a woman and a boy but it could easily be the story of two women or two men."

The video, filmed in Nashville, tells its own story. It's a spooky exploration of how children behave when their parents run away.

"Operator" appears on Carlton's upcoming album Liberman, out October 23. It's available for pre-order here.
