Steve Mason – “Planet Sizes” Video

Steve Mason, the genius Scotsman who used to front the Beta Band, will release his latest solo album Meet The Humans next month on Domino. He tells The Guardian that in contrast to the conceptual sprawl of his last couple projects, this one is “an album where each song is a separate entity, where there is no great narrative running through it.” It’s preceded by “Planet Sizes,” a folk-pop track that qualifies as spacey in sound and substance. “The universe makes me cry,” Mason sings, before later concluding, “The universe is mine.” Anna Ginsburg directed the animated video, which you can watch below.

Meet The Humans is out 2/26 on Domino. Pre-order it in physical or digital formats.
