Parquet Courts shares “Homosapien” from the new album, details the special livestream


Parquet floors‘ New album Sympathy for life comes out this friday (pre-order on vinyl), and the band shared one last song before it all fell apart. While much of the album explores electronic and dance music, so far we’ve only gotten the more punks of the album, and that continues with “Homosapien” which is nonetheless a pretty killer song with one of the band’s signature choruses. “What a time to be alive / A TV in the fridge,” sings Andrew Savage in the opening lines of the song, “A voice that recites the news and leaves out the dark bits.” The video for the song, directed by Marisa Gesualdi, is a fairly straightforward performance clip, although bassist Sean Yeaton appears to come from the set of Bridgerton. It’s fun and you can watch it below.

You can actually get a preview of the entire album on the special Parquet Courts livestream, Feel free: Sympathy for life, visualized, which airs Wednesday, October 20 at 10 p.m. ET and will be available for 48 hours. There are videos for every song on the album, and it features appearances from the NBA Hall of Famer. Bill Walton and swimming for adults Joe pera. Tickets are on sale.

Parquet Courts are playing a sold-out concert Friday at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg, and the band’s 2022 tour includes two concerts at Brooklyn Steel on April 1 with Yu Su and April 2 with Hailu Mergia (tickets).

You can pre-order Sympathy for life on vinyl in the BV store.
