One month after the release of the second Here Comes the Cowboy single “All Of Our Yesterdays,” Mac DeMarco is sharing another song off his forthcoming LP. Specifically, the acclaimed singer-songwriter is serving up a visual for a new Here Comes the Cowboy single known as “On the Square.” The “On the Square” is based on a concept created by Catherine Sweet, and features William Sipos and Sean Campos as its directors and Tommy Midnight as its primary star.
“People are going crazy these days. Everybody’s all nuts and stuff. It’s funny to think of this character that just goes to the saloon and rides his horse. The simple life, out on the farm. I find that comforting,” Mac DeMarco recently told Rolling Stone, sharing some insight into his motivations for Here Comes the Cowboy. “It’s not like I have a vision of what I’m doing, but [outside input] taints my creativity in a way, — especially with people that are trying to sell something … I’d rather not play ball like that. We’ll make something that makes me happy, and if it works out, it does. If it doesn’t, then oh well.”
You can take a look at Mac DeMarco’s new video for “On the Square” above, while his fourth full-length studio album Here Comes the Cowboy is scheduled to see release this Friday, May 10. Mac DeMarco also covered Feist’s “One Evening” on The Tonight Show last night to promote his upcoming project, and you can check out that performance below.
