Animal Collective member Avey Tare (aka David Michael Portner) is releasing a new solo album, Cows on Hourglass Pond, this Friday (March 22) via Domino. Now he has shared another song from the album, “HORS_,” via a video for the song. Portner’s sister, Abby Portner, directed the clip, which features psychedelic images of a horse. Watch it below, followed by Avey Tare’s upcoming tour dates.

Abby Portner had this to say about the video in a press release: “I grew up with horses, so I wanted to make a video for this song since I first heard it at a show I did with Dave in Copenhagen two years ago. To me this video is just about the beauty of a horse, its movements, expressions, and textures. I lit the horse, Calliope, like she was on a stage, colored lights and haze to take it out of context of a normal stable setting, turn the focus to the horse as a character and make it a bit more surreal. Some of my favorite horse movies are: Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken, The Man from Snowy River, National Velvet, Black Beauty, Secretariat, Seabiscuit, The Black Stallion, Phar Lap, A Horse in the Gray Flannel Suit, Spirit, All Roads Lead Home, Running Free, Misty, Racing Stripes, My Friend Flicka, Two Bits and Pepper.”

Previously Avey Tare shared a video for the album’s first single, “Saturdays (Again).” Then he shared another song from the album, “Taken Boy.”

Cows on Hourglass Pond is the follow-up to 2017’s Eucalyptus. Cows on Hourglass Pond was recorded by Portner between January and March 2018 at Laughing Gas in Asheville, NC. It was recorded on a Tascam 48 half-inch reel-to-reel tape machine. Then Portner and Adam McDaniel mixed the album at Drop of Sun in Asheville, NC. Portner’s sister, Abby Portner, also directed the “Saturdays (Again)” video.
