Oscar and the Wolf's 'Oliver' self-directed video

Max Colombie (aka Oscar and the Wolf) has announced his third album The Shimmer. And he's doing it in the form of new music.

To celebrate the news, he has released his new song "Oliver," accompanied by a self-directed video. The new track and its visuals are a summer dream, the latest preview of the full album, which is coming Oct. 22 via [PIAS] Recordings.

"Melancholic French riviera. I’m in a fantasy dreamworld, almost fiction," says Colombie of the new song and video. "Starweed purple haze. We seize the day, knowing we can’t stay here forever. Falling in love mid-summer. Love stoned. Beautiful boy. Swimming in crystal rivers deep as the sky. The sweat on his skin reflects like diamonds in the sun. Carried away in an endless phantom. Tall grass and lilies on the dining table. The boy looks like dynamite. The water is warm. Flower fields and rose gardens. Rich fruit. Rushes of serotonin. Never wanting to leave, never wanting to change, knowing one day, none of this will remain.”
