Published Feb 15, 2018Of Montreal are gearing up to deliver new full length White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood next month, and before it arrives, the group have shared a new video for "Plateau Phase/No Careerism No Corruption."
The clip, directed Christina Eleni Schneider and Clayton Rychlik, can be found in the player below. As Of Montreal leader Kevin Barnes revealed in a statement, the song was initially something he wrote for Janelle Monáe last summer.
"We worked on it together one magical day in her laboratory at Wondaland but nothing really happened with it, so I reworked it into something very different for my own album," Barnes explained. "Lyrically, I pulled inspiration from multiverse theory, the writings of Wilhelm Reich and the economist Guy Standing, Eastern European party culture, and Bluets by Maggie Nelson, as well as my burgeoning new love affair with a woman of mystery and magic."
White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood arrives March 9 through Polyvinyl.
