Andy Shauf is releasing a new album album, Norm, on February 10 via ANTI-. Now he has shared its third single, “Telephone,” via an animated music video for the song. Musician/animator Chad VanGaalen directed the “Telephone” video. Watch it below, followed by Shauf’s upcoming tour dates.

The “Telephone” video is a continuation of the video for Shauf’s previous single, “Catch Your Eye,” also made by VanGaalen.

Shauf had this to say about the video in a press release: “I love Chad’s animation style so much. He takes normal things and makes them odd, but also makes odd things seem totally normal. We asked him to take us into the weird world of Norm and a few months later we received an email with a link to this video and it was everything that we hoped for and much more.”

Previously Shauf shared the album’s first single, “Wasted On You,” via a video for it. “Wasted On You” was one of our Songs of the Week. That was followed by its second single, “Catch Your Eye.”

Norm is the follow-up to 2021’s surprise-released Wilds and 2020’s The Neon Skyline. Neal Pogue (Tyler, the Creator, Janelle Monae, Outkast) mixed the album, which centers of the title character. “The character of Norm is introduced in a really nice way,” Shauf said in a previous press release. “But the closer you pay attention to the record, the more you’re going to realize that it’s sinister.”

Shauf was inspired by David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive when crafting the lyrics for the album and worked with Nicholas Olson as “a story editor” on the lyrics. V Haddad directed the “Wasted On You” video, which was written by Shauf.
