Slowdive are sharing their fifth studio album everything is alive this Friday (September 1), and today we get a final taste of the thing before it arrives. 

The band have shared a beautiful animated video for "alife," which finds the band in surging, uptempo mode — as to be expected, it's lovely. In a statement about the song, Neil Halstead said:

"alife" is one of the first tunes we finished for the record. Shawn Everett did a really nice job with the mix. We tried so many times to figure out a good mix by ourselves and couldn't do it ... it sort of had us beaten until Shawn stepped in. We decided if he could handle that one he could probably do the whole record. Our friend Jake Nelson did a really nice animation for this song; it takes some of the imagery from the artwork and digs a little deeper into that.

"alife" follows previously shared singles "kisses," "skin in the game" and album closer "the slab." Check out the video below.
