Last week, Caroline Polachek announced her fourth solo album — and second under her own name — Desire, I Want to Turn Into You, and today she's shared the new video for album opener "Welcome to My Island" and announced the Spiraling Tour, which will see her hit up Toronto and Vancouver in 2023. 

The Spiraling Tour will feature a whole bunch of rad openers, with Alex G, Sudan Archives, Magdalena Bay, Ethel Cain, George Clanton and Toro Y Moi coming along for the ride at various stops. George Clanton will open for Polachek's April 17 show in Toronto, while Sudan Archives will open in Vancouver on May 8. 

The video for "Welcome to My Island" is as strange and theatrical as one can expect from a Polachek video, featuring the avant pop star batting off giant sperm, running through construction sites, puking paint and ordering a cup of coffee from Weyes Blood

Check out the video, plus her upcoming 2023 tour dates, below. Desire, I Want to Turn Into You arrives February 14.
