Indie noise-rock outfit Deerhoof have shared a new song, “Farewell” Symphony, taken from the band’s upcoming record Future Teenage Cave Artists.
The single’s accompanying video makes use of footage from six different performances of the last movement of Austrian composer Franz Joseph Hayden’s “Farewell” Symphony, from which the track takes its name. Take a look below:
Below the video, Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier wrote: “Just imagine if all the living things that’ve been done in by capitalism could reunite for one big final bow! All the extinct cool underground music scenes, all the extinct species of plants and animals, all the extinct arts and educational and political systems that were meant to help people…they’d all be there!”
Future Teenage Cave Artists , Deerhoof’s 15th Studio record, will be released on 29 May through Joyful Noise. As the band announced its release, they said in a statement that the record is a thoroughly political one, based on the idea that “normal is never coming back,” with the LP being “haunted by memories of a lost world and every failed attempt to save it.”
