This one-shot video features Butler in a suit and tie dancing around in a dark, lonely field, while singing the words to his track. The lyrics of the song come up in little white speech bubbles drawn by hand, accompanied by little animations of piano keys, pennies and saxophones.
The new wave track is ultimately pretty groovy, and jam-packed with synths, horns and parts of intense piano. The danceable “Anna” will definitely have you joining Butler’s dance party and hip moves.
Will Butler describes his eclectic sounding debut, Policy, as “music where the holy fool runs afoul of the casual world”. It comes out on Merge Records March 10th. Will Butler has also recently expanded his announced tour dates.
