"Empty" is a song by American-Scottish alternative rock band Garbage. It was released as the lead single from their sixth studio album Strange Little Birds (2016) on 20 April 2016 by their independent label Stunvolume.
The promotional video for "Empty" was helmed by Samuel Bayer, who also directed the first Garbage videos from their debut album. The video shows the band playing in a room with various flashing colored light effects as well as confetti occasionally raining down from the ceiling. There are many instances where the camera is spinning in a circle around Shirley Manson and occasionally the other band members.
