Mac DeMarco will release his new album This Old Dog in May. The album was preceded by the fuzzy title track which now has a video directed by Mac himself. The suitably surreal visuals are set on the streets of Los Angeles and capture a special canine friendship.

In a statement, the artist describes the video as being about: “A devoted dog discovers the meaning of its own existence through the lives of the humans it teaches to laugh and love. Reincarnated as multiple canines over the course of five decades, the lovable pooch develops an unbreakable bond with a kindred spirit named Ethan. As the boy grows older and comes to a crossroad, the dog once again comes back into his life to remind him of his true self.”

Check out the clip above. My Old Dog is out May 5.
