Devendra Banhart is releasing a new album, Flying Wig, on September 22 via Mexican Summer. Now he has shared the album’s third single, “Nun.” Listen below, followed by Banhart’s upcoming tour dates.

Banhart had this to say about the songs in a press release: “‘Nun’ was written in a Nunnery in Northern Nepal…it’s a simple metaphor: we can run to something, run for something, run out of something….an archetype with plenty of elasticity.”

Cate Le Bon produced Flying Wig. Previously Banhart shared the album’s first single, “Twin,” which was one of our Songs of the Week. Then he shared a music video for its second single “Sirens,” which was also one of our Songs of the Week.
