L’Rain has shared the third single from her forthcoming third LP, I Killed Your Dog. The record is scheduled to arrive October 13 via Mexican Summer, and “r(EMOTE)” — which follows previous album offerings “New Year’s UnResolution” and “Pet Rock” — is out today.


Like most L’Rain tracks, “r(EMOTE)” has tantalizingly lush elements that disappear beneath the song’s slippery surface as soon as they breach it. This impressionistic approach lends itself to repeat listening, and her albums are most fulfilling when absorbed in full. Nevertheless, the new track is an exciting glimpse at a project that’s just weeks away.

Follow a dog through an overgrown field in the visualizer for “r(EMOTE)” below. And scroll further to stream the song on its own, check out I Kill Your Dog’s cover art and tracklist, and view L’Rain’s upcoming tour dates.
