    Canadian singer-songwriter Andy Shauf is set to release his new full-length, The Neon Skyline, early next year via ANTI-. Having previously teased the January 24th release with lead single “Things I Do”, he’s back today with another sampling in “Try Again”.

    A press release notes the album “explores how easy it is to find yourself in familiar patterns and repeat the same mistakes of your past.” “Try Again” takes a look at that concept from the viewpoint of that awkward moment when you run into an ex at a bar. Over a jaunty guitar, Shauf sings in his charming Saskatchewan lilt of pleasantries and fond memories: “Somewhere between drunkenness and charity/ She puts her hand on the sleeve of my coat/ She says ‘I’ve missed this’/ I say ‘I know, I’ve missed you too’/ She says, ‘I was actually talking about your coat.'”

    “Try Again” comes with a stop-motion animated video from directors Gérald Fleury and Timo Hateau. Influenced by ’70s French animation like Chapi Chapo and The Magic Roundabout, the clip features a representative dance of geometric shapes. Check it out ahead.
