Mogwai are releasing a new album, Every Country's Sun, on September 1 via Temporary Residence Inc. Previously they had shared the album's first single, and opening track, "Coolverine." Now the song has a video. Hand Held Cine Club (James and Justin Lockey) directed the black & white clip, which is entirely in slow motion and features a telekinetic event, with objects and people slowly flying through the air as if in an arty episode of Legion (which is already pretty arty as it is). Watch it below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

Every Country's Sun is the first Mogwai album without John Cummings, who left in late 2015. The lineup is now Stuart Braithwaite (guitar, vocals), Barry Burns (keyboards, computer, guitar), Dominic Aitchison (bass), and Martin Bulloch (drums). A press release describes the album as such: "This is music as a keep-out chrysalis, protective audio armor through exalting organs and portentous, dissonant guitar fuzz warping at the edges, bending the world inside-out into a reality in which you'd much rather live."

Braithwaite had this to say about the album in a previous press release: "What's going on in the world politically and socially has to affect you. It was very much on our minds, especially in America. We were vaguely getting over the Scottish referendum, then the death of David Bowie, along comes Brexit, and then Trump. The album was written in a very turbulent, intense period so I think it maybe feels like some kind of shield from that? That's maybe just my take. Because it literally was for me."
