From the album Sauna
Phil Elverum recently announced his latest record as Mount Eerie, with Sauna scheduled to arrive on February 3 through his own P.W. Elverum & Sun label.
To keep the anticipation mounting, he's now shared a video for opening and title track "Sauna."
As for the "Sauna" clip, it juxtaposes barren-looking trees and industrial complexes with a crackling fire and line-dancing, lassoing cowgirls. Subtitles provide the lyrics throughout.
