Dinosaur Jr. have shared another single from their upcoming album Sweep It Into Space. ‘Take It Back’ features a digital mellotron by J Mascis and it arrives with a stop-motion animated video directed by Callum Scott-Dyson. Check it out below.
“[I] really wanted to use the creature on the front of the album sleeve for Sweep It Into Space as an inspiration and springboard for its own little adventure, exploring some simple notions of creation, dependence, coming of age and searching for another like yourself,” Scott-Dyson said of the song’s visual a statement. “I wanted to mix those themes with my style of stop motion animation, everything being very DIY and handmade, using any materials I could get my hands on to bring the idea to life and give it a surreal and otherworldly feel. I’ve always been a really big fan of Dinosaur Jr, so I was working extra hard to do something that could add to such an awesome track and sit alongside it.”
Sweep It Into Space is out this Friday (April 23) via Jagjaguwar. It includes the previously released singles ‘Garden’ and ‘I Ran Away’.
