Kevin Barnes and of Montreal are releasing a new album, White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood, on March 9 via Polyvinyl. Previously of Montreal shared the album's first single, "Paranoiac Intervals/Body Dysmorphia." (It was one of our Songs of the Week.) Then there was a video for the song. Now they have shared another song from the album, "Plateau Phase/No Careerism No Corruption," via a colorful video directed by Christina Eleni Schneider and Clayton Rychlik. Watch it below.

Frontman/main creative force Kevin Barnes had this to say about the song in a press release: "'Plateau Phase/No Careerism No Corruption' started out as a song I wrote for Janelle Monáe last summer called 'Fucked In Your Driveway.' We worked on it together one magical day in her laboratory at Wondaland but nothing really happened with it, so I reworked it into something very different for my own album. Lyrically, I pulled inspiration from Multiverse Theory, the writings of Wilhelm Reich and the economist Guy Standing, Eastern European party culture, and Bluets by Maggie Nelson, as well as my burgeoning new love affair with a woman of mystery and magic. We shot the video in Atlanta at an art/performance space called Rowdy Dowdy one chilly winter day this January. It was directed/edited by Christina Eleni Schneider and costumed by Taber Lathrop, Elizabeth Wheeler and David Barnes and I wore an outfit created by AC Carter."

The band also recently shared a cover of Molly Drake's "Love Isn't a Right" for Amazon Music's dual Valentine's Day-timed "Love Me" and "Love Me Not" playlists.

The album is the follow-up to 2016's Innocence Reaches and 2017's Rune Husk EP.
