Interpol have shared the new song ‘Something Changed’, taken from their upcoming album The Other Side of Make-Believe. Lead single ‘Toni’ was accompanied by the opening installment of a two-part film from director Van Alpert, and ‘Something Changed’ completes the short film. Watch and listen below.
“In ‘Something Changed’, part 2 of our short film with Van Alpert, reality and reverie converge and our two lead characters find themselves in a kind of dream state – being pursued inexorably by an ominous figure (played by myself),” Paul Banks said in a press release. “The lives of the three are intertwined in a nebula of fear, retribution, desire, and defiance. Who will receive their just deserts? Stay tuned and find out.”
Alpert added: “Paul and I like the idea that Something Changed would be like a dream. It’s as if our two main characters wake up from what happened in Toni and their lives are irreparably different. They are now on the run from some dark force that is a bit more primal and encroaching.“
The Other Side of Make-Believe arrives on July 15 via Matador.
