Indie rock mainstays Real Estate have shared a final pre-release taste of their upcoming album, Daniel, in the form of the song “Flowers".

The track is accompanied by an animated video directed by Magnus Carlsson who also created Radiohead’s “Paranoid Android”.

“For me, the greatest animated music video of all time is Magnus Carlsson’s iconic "Paranoid Android" video for Radiohead,” vocalist Martin Courtney says of the video. “It looked like nothing else on MTV in 1997. So when we decided to do an animated video for our next single, that was at the top of the mood board. Let’s make something like the “Paranoid Android” video. It didn’t even occur to us that we could actually ask Magnus Carlsson himself to make a video for our song, or that he would actually do it, or that it would end up just as weird and beautiful as we could have imagined. Big thanks to the legend Mr. Carlsson for being up for working with us.”

“This song is the closest Real Estate will ever get to like a Shania Twain style country rocker,” the band says of the track. “We keep saying we didn’t go to Nashville to make a country record - we didn’t - but then we put out shit like this. Who cares though this song rocks. Check out that guitar solo!"

The band previously shared the songs “Haunted World” and “Water Underground", the latter of which was accompanied by a music video inspired by and made in collaboration with and featuring the stars of the beloved 1990s Nickelodeon sitcom The Adventures of Pete & Pete.

Daniel, will be released on 23 February by Domino, and is available to pre-order now.
