Daughter of Swords, aka Mountain Man’s Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, has shared an animated video for “Fields Of Gold,” the latest from her upcoming album, Dawnbreaker. Stereogum, who premiered the song and video today, which features drawings by Sauser-Monnig and animation by Robert Edridge-Waks, is saying “it shimmers and shines like a ray of light, a true field of gold if you will.”
Of the song Sauser-Monnig says “‘Fields of Gold’ is a car song. It’s about that beautiful sense of possibility you get when you’re driving long distances and the facts of your life lift away enough to let you imagine parallel versions of your life playing out in all the unknown places you’re moving through.”
Dawnbreaker is available for pre-order now and due June 28 via Nonesuch Records.
Additionally, Daughter of Swords has shared a string of tour dates that include shows with Sylvan Esso and Mountain Goats, and a stop at Raleigh, NC’s Hopscotch Music Festival.
