Australian singer/songwriter Stella Donnelly is releasing her debut full-length album, Beware of the Dogs, on March 8 via Secretly Canadian. Previously she shared a video for its first single "Old Man," which was an honorable mention on our Songs of the Week list, but in retrospect definitely should've made the main list. Now she has shared another song from the album, "Lunch," also via a video for the song. Watch it below, followed by her upcoming tour dates. Also below is the "Old Man" video again.

"Lunch" is about homesickness and the challenges of being on tour. Consequently, the video features amusing footage captured on tour. Donnelly self-directed the video, shooting it with an early 2000s camcorder. Mainly the song's lyrics appear on the image, but sometimes funny subtitles show up instead.
 
Donnelly had this to say about "Lunch" in a press release: "This is my favorite song on the record. It was a massive team effort the night before I flew away on tour. A song that was only ever meant to be played on a single guitar and sung turned out to be the most intricate and textured piece of music I've ever produced. I wrote this about the feeling of displacement I get when I go on tour and come back and nothing feels the same. There's a disconnect there."
