Published Mar 02, 2020Leading up to the release of their newest record The Dreamer's Workbook, Toronto-based psychedelic pop quartet Mr. Joy have shared a new "live portrait" for the record's newest single "Music."
The video was recorded straight to tape and shot on 16mm black and white film, live in-studio by director Johnny de Courcy.
Describing the visual effort, the band have offered the following statement:
Think of someone sitting to have their portrait painted and then imagine that instead of a brush and paint, the artist used a tape machine and Bolex.
The Dreamer's Workbook arrives digitally on March 6 via Blob Records with an accompanying picture book. The band describe the forthcoming effort as a "concept album based on their dream diary scribblings and fuzzy recollections in the moments after waking."
Mr. Joy had previously shared two tracks from the record, "Dream Cure for a Dog Lover" and "The Language of Dreams."
