Parquet Courts just released “Berlin Got Blurry,” a new single and accompanying music video from their upcoming April 8 Rough Trade release Human Performance. The track follows “Dust,” the first tune the band shared from what will be their fifth studio album.

“‘Berlin Got Blurry’ is a song about saying goodbye to someone from the other side of the world,” the band’s Andrew Savage explains in a press release, “and about feeling completely foreign to your environment; knowing you can’t go home, but not knowing where you belong.

“I wrote the song in Berlin, so it made sense to try to recreate my experience for the video. It was shot on 16mm by the wonderful, talented and patient Claes Nordwall, who was able to take my very loose concept and make it into something really beautiful.”
