Tim Heidecker collaborates with Kurt Vile on new single ‘Sirens of Titan’

Tim Heidecker has shared a new collaboration with Kurt Vile, “Sirens of Titan.”

The track comes from Heidecker’s forthcoming album, High School, out June 24th via Spacebomb Records. On “Sirens of Titan,” Heidecker sings of water beds, bad report cards, Velvet Underground records, and more. Directed and animated by Ben Levin, the accompanying video comes packed with trippy shots of an animated teenage Heidecker with a television, records, and more for a head.

“I’m so happy to have Ben Levin’s incredible talents here to put a visual spin on this song, a song which catches me in a reflective mode, thinking about some of those awkward days in my high school days, feeling weird and learning about all the cool shit,” Heidecker explains. “I wrote it thinking about how Kurt Vile writes songs and I was embarrassed to send it to him, but did anyway and he liked it enough to come over and sing and play on it!”

Watch the video for “Sirens of Titan (feat. Kurt Vile)” below.

Heidecker is ready to return to the horrors of High School on his forthcoming album. Produced by Heidecker, Drew Erickson, Eric D. Johnson, and Mac DeMarco, the album sees Heidecker leaning into his signature playful sound.

In addition to “Sirens of Titan,” High School features previously released singles “Punch in the Gut” and “Buddy.”
