Freshly signed to 4AD,

Bartees Strange released his label debut, “Heavy Heart,” and its music video, today.

 

Strange pays tribute to his grandfather and father in his first new music in over two years. He sings about the years of guilt that have piled up on him – as Strange has been succeeding as a touring musician, his grandfather recently passed away, his partner stays at home without him, and the guilt even stems back to his father’s sacrifices to build a better future for Strange.

The Missy Dabice-directed video follows Strange bearing his grandfather and father’s clothes. Strange had previously released Say Goodbye To Pretty Boy in 2020, and his proper debut Live Forever the same year.

Alongside unveiling “Heavy Heart,” Strange detailed his debut UK and European headline tour. He is set to perform throughout July, and tickets for the European leg go on sale at 10 a.m. local on Friday, Mar. 4. For U.S. fans, Strange is scheduled to open for Car Seat Headrest’s tour beginning later this month, which runs until mid-May.
