on August 08, 2017, 11:25am

 

The Shins haven’t slowed down since the release of Heartworms this past March. They recently announced a fresh batch of tour dates, put on a solid set at this past weekend’s Lollapalooza, and today released a new music video for “Half a Million”.

Directed by Lamar + Nik, the trippy video for the upbeat track was “created using 5,566 stickers that were then stop-motion animated,” according to a press release. Watch it above.

If you’re itching for more of Mercer’s live presence, he also recently popped over to NPR for a Tiny Desk Concert, where the singer performed solo renditions of new tracks “Mildenhall” and “The Fear”, as well as a Chutes Too Narrow classic in “Young Pilgrims”. Watch it below.

The Shins are off to Europe for the rest of August, but will return to the States for a string of dates from September to November, during which they’ll be joined by the likes of Spoon, Foxygen, Day Wave, and Baio. See the full itinerary below.
