Dinosaur Jr. recently announced a new album, Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not, and shared its first single, “Tiny.” The latest from J Mascis and band is due out August 5 via Jagjaguwar and the band released an album announcement video featuring Henry Rollins. Now the band has shared a video for “Tiny,” in which J Mascis goes skateboarding with his dog (yes, his dog rides a skateboard too). Laurie Collyer directed the clip, which you can watch below.

Collyer had this to say about the video in a press release: “Having come of age in the so-called grunge era I was always about not selling out, not buying in, staying true to my identity and living low. Being a freak in a freakscene was where I found home. This meant listening to the music of the moment at maximum volume - Dinosaur Jr. being in heavy rotation on the turntables of me and my people.

“I got to know J Mascis in 2012 when we hired him to compose the score for my film, Sunlight Jr., a love story set among the ruins of the American dream starring Matt Dillon and Naomi Watts. J is nothing short of a creative genius. In the years since our work on this film, I got to know J as a friend. And what I learned is that, aside from music, J Mascis has other passions. Bulldogs and skateboarding among them. When a friend of mine told me there was such a thing as skateboarding bulldogs, I took it from there and came up with the idea for ‘Tiny.’

“J’s dog, sleeping outside his rehearsal room dreams up the perfect day with J. He wants to skate without falling down or crashing. He wants to skate with J. He waits patiently outside the roller derby for J to finish his gig. The rest is history. Enjoy ‘Tiny!’”

Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not is the band’s eleventh studio album and the follow-up to 2012’s I Bet on Sky. Mascis also guests on the recent Band of Horses track “In a Drawer,” which you can listen to here.
