Montréal’s Helena Deland has shared a self-directed video for her new single “Swimmer.” Deland has also announced tour dates for 2022 in which Andy Shauf and The Weather Station are set to be supporting acts. View the video below along with the full list of tour dates.

Deland elaborates upon the inspiration behind the song and video in a press release, stating: “A little while after finding out that my mother was sick and that our days together were numbered, I went through a fundamental change, faced as I was with the need to reconsider things I had taken for granted. Growing older with her was now an impossible scenario, but I was being offered a suspension, some time to understand and try to change patterns that had been detrimental to our relationship, and to love her how I wished for her to be loved. I feel that we are in a similar predicament with the world, faced with the climate crisis.

“Some losses are too big to wrap our minds around. Here, I am on the beach, watching my mother swim, faced with the immensity of the ocean, of our fragility, riding the troughs of magical thinking and crests of acceptance.”

Deland’s debut album, Someone New, came out in 2020 via Luminelle. Last year, Deland released a self-titled collaborative album alongside fellow Montréal artist Ouri under the joint moniker Hildegard.
