Last month Sweden’s Amason shared a new song, the slow-burner “You Don’t Have to Call Me” (it was one of our Songs of the Week). Now they have shared a video for the song. The band’s own Pontus Winnberg directed the clip, which has a collage feel, mixing black & white photos of the band with colorful animation. It’s the first single from their upcoming new album, which a press release says is due out this August. Watch the video below.

Amason’s excellent debut album, Sky City, came out back in January 2015 on Fairfax Recordings/INGRID. Amason’s members also play in other notable Swedish bands and are Pontus Winnberg (Miike Snow), Gustav Ejstes (Dungen), Petter Winnberg (Little Majorette), Amanda Bergman (Hajen, Idiot Wind), and Nils Törnqvist (Little Majorette).

Bergman had this to say about “You Don’t Have to Call Me” in a previous press release: “Some songs take forever to complete. Seems like they’re sliding, indefinitely. Be it in and out of the ‘finished’ folder or in and out of your head. Changed and rearranged forever until it’s dead and dried out. This song is an example of the opposite. Bread, butter, cheese, eat. No nervous afterthoughts. We’re nothing but proud.”

Previously Amason also did a P3 Session (a Norwegian radio program on NRK P3) where they performed “You Don’t Have to Call Me” and “Ålen,” with the latter song morphing into a cover of Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s “All the Stars,” from the Black Panther soundtrack. Check it out here again.
