Published Sep 21, 2016Canadian throat singer and former Polaris Music Prize recipient Tanya Tagaq is gearing up to unleash her next album, Retribution, having already previewed the record with the Shad-featuring single "Centre." That track has now received the video treatment thanks to Chad VanGaalen, completing a wicked Cancon trifecta.
"I was really just lead on by the intro Shad rap at the beginning into the abyss of cosmic pleasure realms," VanGaalen said to Stereogum. "It was my mission to bring those words to life and not understate what they both were doing with the song. Truth be told, I would have enjoyed having a full year to work on it, but the world doesn't wait for oil paint anymore."
Well, we're happy it's done and here now. His distinctive illustration style breathes even more life into the already energetic offering, and you can watch it in the player below right now.
Tagaq's Retribution officially arrives on October 21 through Six Shooter Records.
