DIIV have released “Raining On Your Pillow,” as the final single to be taken from their forthcoming new album, Frog in Boiling Water.

Of the song, the band says: “‘Raining on Your Pillow’ is a song which brings to mind the shameful past (and present) of American imperialism. Lost in a terrifying landscape, a lone soldier ruminates on the existence of a landscape of his own far removed from conflict. Does it matter if this place is real or not? Is a false sense of hope enough to give our lives meaning in the midst of despair? A looping guitar figure plays underneath a driving rhythm in a cloud of murky atmosphere of analog synths and tape loops. Menacing, doomed, and strangely hopeful.”

"Raining On Your Pillow" follows previous singles, "Frog In Boiling Water", Brown Paper Bag", “Soul-Net” and “Everyone Out".

For the final instalment of the Frog In Boiling Water album release, DIIV has created a conceptual film in the guise of a music video for the single “Raining on Your Pillow.” The band collaborated with experimental film directing team, TRLLM (Jak Ritger & K8 Howl) and fine artist, Harry Gould Harvey IV. Together, the group translated the songs themes of military desertion, desire for solace and challenging one’s ideology into an abstract collage of high-speed videography and hand-drawings.

Frog in Boiling Water is set for release on 24 May via Fantasy Records, and is available to pre-order now.
