Iconic art-pop group Fischerspooner released their first album in nearly a decade, ‘Sir’, via Ultra Records today. Entirely produced by Michael Stipe, the album presents a resistant narrative with an overtly queer and celebratory body of work in response to the current atmosphere in America. To coincide with the release the band have shared their captivating new video for “Butterscotch Goddam”.
Speaking of the record Casey Spooner said – “When I started this record I was a different person. I thought I knew who I was and what my life was going to be like. I was wrong. So wrong. I lost it all. And I kept losing more and more. I didn’t think I would survive. I had dark thoughts. I struggled to rebuild. I tried to heal. I had to let myself go.This album is a document of a turbulent, wild transformation full of love, loss, lust and redemption. This album is a queer treatise against political conservatism and oppression. This album saved my life. Some days it was all I had. I’m thankful for every disaster that befell me. I’m a better man now. HELL YEAH!”
The Video’s director Carlo Van de Roer said about the project –“The song is about a tumultuous love affair. We shot the video entirely in-camera, using optical devices and new filmmaking tools to play with the push and pull of a dichotomous relationship, and the accumulating distortion of reality that comes with that.”
