New tunes from Hiatus Kaiyote? Yes, please!

Shortly after releasing their video for “Chivalry Is Not Dead,” from their Mood Valiant album, the band has shared a new track in “Canopic Jar.”

“A canopic jar is an ancient artifact from Egypt. When they preserved the body through mummification for the afterlife, the organs were contained in a canopic jar,” Nai Palm explains. “I used this image of preserving something in this lifetime to be accessed in another as a metaphor for an unobtainable relationship, to re-appear throughout the ages because circumstance won’t allow it this time around.”
