Stephen Malkmus releases new single ‘Shadowbanned’

Pavement frontman, Stephen Malkmus, has released his latest solo single ‘Shadowbanned’.

The track, which is taken from Malkmus’ upcoming new album Traditional Techniques, arrives with a music video directed by Jan Lankisch and features the likes of Kim Gordon, Mac DeMarco, Sharon Van Etten and more.

The latest single follows on from the release of the album’s lead track, ‘Xian Man’, as Malkmus prepares to share his new album on March 6th.

Speaking about the clip, director Lankisch said in a statement: “The video was inspired by reading about female singers and musicians who were photoshopped from their album covers by an Iranian music streaming site.”

Lankisch continued: “Identity is a matter of design. People like to play with characters and pretend to be someone else.”
