Tindersticks released a new album, No Treasure But Hope, last November via City Slang. Today they have released the accompanying See My Girls EP, which features two versions of No Treasure track “See My Girls” and two additional tracks (“A Street Walker’s Carol” and “Blood and Bone”). They have also shared a video for “See My Girls.” Watch the video and stream the EP below. Also below are the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Frontman Stuart A. Staples had this to say about “See My Girls” and its video in a press release: “‘See My Girls’ is a song about isolation, tourism, migration, and as part of No Treasure but Hope about the beauty and terror of the world. It was written on Ithaca and from the perspective of a small island, looking out with wonder and apprehension across the sea and beyond. The film is a collaboration with my daughter Sidonie Osborne Staples. After much preparation and experimentation, she made a continuous, layered illustration of her interpretation of the song, around 50mm high and 3m in length.”

Previously Tindersticks shared No Treasure But Hope‘s first single, “The Amputees,” via a video for the track. It was one of our Songs of the Week. Then they shared another song from it, “Pinky in the Daylight,” via a video for the track directed by Staples (it was also one of our Songs of the Week).

Tindersticks’ last album, The Waiting Room, was released in 2016 via City Slang. Unlike most previous Tindersticks’ albums, No Treasure But Hope was recorded fairly quickly. “Five weeks from the first notes recorded to the mastering,” said Staples in a previous press release.

“The last two albums were gradually built to a point of being finished in our studio from moments of playing and recording together,” Staples further explained. “When we figured out how to present the songs live, different things happened to them. This time, we wanted to reverse that - to do something that was about being committed to a song together in a moment.”

Staples released a solo album, Arrhythmia, in 2018 via City Slang. Earlier in 2019 he did the score for the film High Life, which was directed by Claire Denis (Staples has scored various other Denis films in the past) and starred Robert Pattinson. Tindersticks contributed the new song “Willow” to the soundtrack and it featured the vocals of Pattinson.
