Hudson Mohawke’s upcoming debut LP, Lantern, is one of our most anticipated albums of the summer.

Hudson Mohawke’s releasing his new album, Lantern, on June 16 via Warp. That’s creeping up on us soon so he’s released a video for first single “Very First Breath”. 

The video has a curious early-Wong Kar-wai feel to it. It follows two characters who have an inaudible conversation that leads to their meeting. The clip was directed by Sam de Jong

Watch it below:

 To add some context, here is a statement from HudMo explaining the personal and artistic significance he ascribes to the song:

“Very First Breath” was something fresh for me. I’d been touring on the same circuit for a couple of years with Irfane and I had been so busy on TNGHT stuff I was itching to work on more song structured record... The album flows through the passage of the day and in my head, I see this song as the very beginning of the record. The sun just coming up. It was important this was the first track people hear.

It's a hell of a sunrise. I wonder where “Ryderz”—the glorious track he shared a few weeks back, but oddly has not released on any official channels—fits in his vision for Lanterns.
