Courtney Barnett has announced details of her new record, Tell Me How You Really Feel launching the news with a kaleidoscopic animated video for single, Nameless, Faceless made by artist and animator Lucy Dyson.
Lucy’s collaged video for Nameless, Faceless plays upon Courtney’s choice of song title, cutting and layering photographs of the artist intermixed with various bits of slightly random, but brilliant footage. Clambering cats sticking out their tongues pop up frequently throughout the animation, along with limbs flying in and out of screen and even some frankfurter sausages travelling through space.
The Berlin-based animator is a prolific artist, directing and producing over 50 music videos so far in her career. Back in 2016 Lucy was also commissioned to create the animated content for Beyoncé’s Formation world tour.
Courtney’s back catalogue of music videos has seen her collaborate with animators frequently. Courtney also works as an artist herself, illustrating the sleeves for her previous records _Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, and The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas. The release of Nameless, Faceless comes after Courtney has surprised fans with a mysterious teaser earlier this week as well as sending out unexpected vinyl copies of the single to independent record stores.
Tell Me How You Really Feel will be released on 18 May 2018.
