Devendra Banhart is releasing a new album, Flying Wig, this Friday via Mexican Summer. Now he has shared the album’s fourth single, “Fireflies,” via a music video that features Anthony Ivancich and Julia Crockett of the Stud Country Queer Country Western Dancing community. Christian Stavros and Joseph Wasilewski directed the video. Watch it below, followed by Banhart’s upcoming tour dates.

Banhart had this to say about “Fireflies” in a press release: “This is a song of regret…. With a bit of acceptance of the temporal nature of all phenomena thrown in there…. I wanted to write something about Paradox, the space where two contradicting views can exist and both be true.”

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. Then he shared the album’s third single, “Nun.”
