Dinosaur Jr. has released the new single, ‘Take It Back’, which is taken from their new album, “Sweep It Into Space”.
Alongside the single release is the video, which was directed by Callum Scott-Dyson, and consists of stop-motion animation and a vivid photomontage.
According to the director, he wanted “to use the creature on the front of the album sleeve for” Sweep It Into Space “as an inspiration and springboard for its own little adventure, exploring some simple notions of creation, dependence, coming of age and searching for another like yourself.
I wanted to mix those themes with my style of stop motion animation, everything being very DIY and handmade, using any materials I could get my hands on to bring the idea to life and give it a surreal and otherworldly feel. I’ve always been a really big fan of Dinosaur Jr., so I was working extra hard to do something that could add to such an awesome track and sit alongside it. “
The new album “Sweep It Into Space” is out now on Jagjaguwar.
