New York City icons and seminal electro-clash group Fischerspooner have released their sixth studio album titled Sir, their first in nearly a decade. The Michael Stipe produced LP occupies an “overtly queer and celebratory body work in response to the current atmosphere in America,” according to a statement from the group .
Produced in Michael Stipe’s home in Atlanta, Georgia, the collection hyper-erotic, politically tinged ballads exists at the intersection brazen maximalism and calculated theatrics.
To celebrate the release, Fischerspooner have also shared their captivating new video for “,” which was directed by Carlo Van de Roer.
“The song is about a tumultuous love affair” says Roer. “We shot the video entirely in-camera, using optical devices and new filmmaking tools to play with the push and pull a dichotomous relationship, and the accumulating distortion reality that comes with that.”
