Gord Downie's "The Least Impossible" Gets a Tripped-Out New Video
It's the latest in the 'Away Is Mine' video series
Published Oct 27, 2020Once again, we're being treated to some new visuals in support of Gord Downie's Away Is Mine. This time, its the album's "The Least Impossible."
The clip is an animated one and actually the fifth video from the final album by the late Tragically Hip frontman. The video was done by director Sara Basso and illustrator Laura Arango,
As a press release explains it:
Grappling with life or livelihood and the fleeting nature of either, Gord sings over rattling synthesizers "I try not to try / I try not to know / Up until thought itself asks / 'Where do you go?'" Pondering this line, director Sara Basso and illustrator Laura Arango, set out to explore the view from the edge of the abyss.
In a statement, Basso further elaborated:
"The Least Impossible" is about a journey into the unknown. I wanted to visualize this by exploring a psychedelic trip within ourselves, one that pushes the limits of our imagination and tries to make sense of the things that defy our relative understanding. We transition through realms beyond our world, where space and time are abstract, mimicking the attempt to reach a higher state of consciousness in search of the greater truth.

Away Is Mine is out now through Arts & Crafts.
As previously reported, another unreleased Downie solo album is said to be in the works recorded before work began on Away Is Mine.
