Stephen Malkmus has shared a new track called “Brainwashed” via an acoustic performance video.
The new clip sees Malkmus performing an intimate rendition of the track on acoustic guitar at La Fontain de Belleville in Paris. The track truly revolves around Malkmus’ lyricism, as he croons lines like, “Brainwash me, brainwash me/ Please take these old thoughts away/ Scatter and smother and cover/ Them down where they lay/ I could care less where they land.”

Malkmus’ forthcoming album Traditional Techniques is set for release on March 6th via Matador.
