Andy Shauf shares new song “Try Again”: Stream

on November 13, 2019, 3:06pm

Canadian singer-songwriter Andy Shauf is set to release his new full-length, The Neon Skyline, early next year via ANTI-. Having previously teased the January 24th release with lead single “Things I Do”, he’s back today with another sampling in “Try Again”.

A press release notes the album “explores how easy it is to find yourself in familiar patterns and repeat the same mistakes of your past.” “Try Again” takes a look at that concept from the viewpoint of that awkward moment when you run into an ex at a bar. Over a jaunty guitar, Shauf sings in his charming Saskatchewan lilt of pleasantries and fond memories: “Somewhere between drunkenness and charity/ She puts her hand on the sleeve of my coat/ She says ‘I’ve missed this’/ I say ‘I know, I’ve missed you too’/ She says, ‘I was actually talking about your coat.'”

“Try Again” comes with a stop-motion animated video from directors Gérald Fleury and Timo Hateau. Influenced by ’70s French animation like Chapi Chapo and The Magic Roundabout, the clip features a representative dance of geometric shapes. Check it out ahead.

Shauf already has a massive run of 2020 tour dates mapped out in support of The Neon Skyline, including dates with Molly Sarlé and Artist of the Month Faye Webster. Check the full itinerary beneath the video, and get tickets here.
