Caroline Polachek Shares New Version of ‘The Gate’ Featuring Oneohtrix Point Never

Caroline Polachek has released an extended mix of ‘The Gate’, the opening track of her debut solo album, Pang, via her Orchard imprint Perpetual Novice.  Clocking in at 10 minutes, the new version features additional “textural contributions” from producers Oneohtrix Point Never and PC Music’s Danny Harle. ‘The Gate (Extended Mix)’ comes with a music video directed by by Ezra Miller and made by “combining 3D landscapes with AI programming trained on Yves Tanguy and J.M.W. paintings.” Check it out below.

“In the original version of the song, the closing lyric (‘Finally, there’s a way/To be both free and safe’) are the words I’m waiting to hear, but never do,” Caroline Polachek said in a statement. “The extended version of the song then is a sort of parallel universe or alternate ending, where those words not only arrive, but ring true.”

Since releasing Pang last year, the art pop musician and former Chairlift singer has appeared on A.G. Cook’s debut album as well as Christine and the Queens’ La Vita Nuova EP. She also contributed to Oneohtrix Point Never’s Magic Oneohtrix Point Never track ‘Long Road Home’.
