Watch: Stephen Malkmus shares video for new song 'Brainwashed'


Stephen Malkmus has shared a brand new video for his previously unreleased song ‘Brainwashed’ ahead of his new album Traditional Techniques.

The album is set to act as a counterbalance to Malkmus’ 2019 effort Groove Denied and champions stripped-back acoustic songs over the electronic sounds of the previous record.

As part of the new album, Malkmus has shared the new video for album track ‘Brainwashed’ which was filmed for La Blogothéque at La Fontaine de Belleville in Paris.

It’s a low-key affair that sees the former Pavement man performing the song with just his acoustic guitar and unique vocal.

Following on from previous release ‘Xian Man’, the song will appear on Malkmus’ new album Traditional Techniques which drops on March 6th. But until then, sit back and watch the brand new video for ‘Brainwashed’ below.
