One year after the release of Pang, Caroline Polachek has shared a video for a new extended mix of the album’s intro track “The Gate.”
Polachek mixed the new song, which features “textural contributions” from Oneohtrix Point Never and Danny L. Harle, according to a press release. The accompanying music video, which was created by Ezra Miller, comes packed with dreamy animations.
“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,” Polachek says in a press release. “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.”
