Avey Tare – “HORS_”

Avey Tare’s forthcoming follow-up to 2017’s album Eucalyptus, the uniquely titled Cows on Hourglass Pond, arrives this Friday March 22. In the run-up to the album’s release, Avey Tare has shared a new single, the solemn and sonically kaleidoscopic “HORS_.”  The new track comes with an equally mesmerizing and bizarre new video, directed by Avey Tare’s sister and collaborator Abby Portner, which features a psychedelic visual of a horse.

“I grew up with horses, so I wanted to make a video for this song since I first heard it at a show I did with Dave in Copenhagen 2 years ago,” Abby Portner said in a statement. “To me this video is just about the beauty of a horse, its movements, expressions and textures. I lit the horse, Calliope, like she was on a stage, colored lights and haze to take it out of context of a normal stable setting, turn the focus to the horse as a character and make it a bit more surreal.”

Along with the new single, Avey Tare has announced new North American tour dates. “HORS_” follows recent singles “Taken Boy” and “Saturdays (Again)”  A website where you can play with friendly cows on screen that was also unveiled in anticipation of Cows on Hourglass Pond. Watch the video for “HORS_” and check out the tour schedule below.
