Warpaint – “Champion”

Warpaint – “Champion”

For those keeping track, that’s three much-anticipated new records just announced in the past week coming out at the end of April/start of May. Following news of new releases from Hatchie and Melody’s Echo Chamber, Los Angeles’ Warpaint yesterday released details of their fourth full-length and first since 2016’s Heads Up.

Radiate Like This will be out on May 6 – happy birthday to me – and the band have shared the opening track via a “visualizer”, which i guess is different from a video. The official pullquote about the single is:

Being a champion to oneself and for others. We are all in this together, life is too short not to strive for excellence in all that we do.


So there you go.

Update: And as of March 17, the stream has been replaced by an official video, accompanied by the following note by Jenny Lee Lindberg:

“Being apart it was a little tricky to make a video. Tt [Theresa Wayman] came up [with] some key points with camera and angles, so we had some cohesion. The motivation was to feel like a champ and deliver the goods and let your honey flag shine.”
