Mac DeMarco unveils weird video for “This Old Dog”, announces new tour dates

on March 30, 2017, 12:15pm

On May 5th, Mac DeMarco will return with a new album, This Old Dog, via Captured Tracks. In anticipation, our favorite Canadian jizz jazzer has shared a music video for the LP’s title track.

Directed by DeMarco himself, the Los Angeles-set clip stars a bunch of people wearing creepy dog masks. In an accompanying press release, the songwriter claims there’s a deeper meaning behind the strange visual:

“A devoted dog discovers the meaning of its own existence through the lives of the humans it teaches to laugh and love. Reincarnated as multiple canines over the course of five decades, the lovable pooch develops an unbreakable bond with a kindred spirit named Ethan. As the boy grows older and comes to a crossroad, the dog once again comes back into his life to remind him of his true self.”

Just kidding! As Pitchfork points out, DeMarco’s summary is lifted from A Dog’s Purpose, a 2017 film which recently came under fire over accusations of animal cruelty. Watch the video up above.

In related news, DeMarco has also extended his upcoming tour, adding dates in London, Montreal, Vancouver, New Orleans, and more.
