Earlier this month, the Baltimore art-pop trio Future Islands announced their new album Singles, the Chris Coady-produced follow-up to their great and ridiculously underrated 2011 LP On The Water. This morning, they shared the video for first single “Seasons (Waiting On You).” Frequent Future Islands collaborator Jay Buim directed the video, and it’s a loving and lyrical tribute to the life of the present-day cowboy, documenting the rodeos, church services, and early farm mornings that make up his everyday life. It’s a touching and beautifully photographed piece of filmmaking and a wonderful complement for the slow, homespun majesty of the song, which we’re hearing for the first time right now. Check it out below.
Singles is due out 3/25 via 4AD.
