Lala Lala shares cinematic video for new track ‘Diver,’ announces forthcoming album

Lala Lala has returned to announce her new album, I Want The Door To Open, out October 8th via Hardly Art. As part of the announcement, she’s shared a video for her new track, “Diver.”

The new single is “the thesis of the album,” Lala Lala explains. “I think it’s easy to feel like we keep making the same mistakes over and over again, that we’re Sisyphus. The key is falling in love with the labor of walking up the mountain.”

“Diver” is an electric tune that sees Lala Lala explode into a captivating chorus. Throughout the moody tune, Lala Lala sings about a constant struggle. The new tune was inspired by Kate Bush and Jennifer Egan’s novel Manhattan Beach. The accompanying video was co-directed by Lala Lala’s Lillie West and Brielle Brilliant. The striking clip comes packed with cinematic shots of West chopping away at an ice block in the desert.

Watch the video for “Diver” below.
 


 
The upcoming album features Chicago’s Nnamdi Ogbonnaya, poet Kara Jackson, OHMME, Landlady’s Adam Schatz, Sen Morimoto, Christian Lee Hutson, Kaina Castillo, Hand Habits’ Meg Duffy, Will Miller, Gia Margaret, Josia Wolf, and Ben Gibbard.
