Last year, the Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth released Guilt Trips, his dazed and excellent debut album. Next month, he’ll follow it up with his just-announced sophomore LP Alone For The First Time, which features collaboration with lesser-known artists like Alex G and Lontalius. Hemsworth teamed up with the singer Dawn Golden on the lovely first single “Snow In Newark,” which he shared a couple of weeks ago. The song’s new video, directed by Martin C. Pariseau, opens with Hemsworth shaving his head, and the rest of it captures Hemsworth ambling around Nepal. He visits Buddhist temples, shares a moment with a monkey, rides an elephant, and attends a huge street festival. It’s a striking, beautifully photographed piece of work. Watch it and check out the Alone For The First Time tracklist below.
