KING GIZZARD & The LIZARD WIZARD – ” Honey “

Teasing new music yesterday, the Melbourne faves followed through this morning and produced a music video to boot. “Honey” is the brand-new single from King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. Revisiting the microtonal theme, Honey feels sombre and slightly eery, which seems fitting for the times in 2020.
Honey has an accompanying video by frequent collaborators/studio mates PHC, it’s an  eerie, yet gorgeous tune in ‘Honey’.

“I wrote this song a couple of years ago,” Mackenzie said on Twitter. “It’s nice to have it out in the world.” ‘Honey’ is the first we’re hearing from King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard since 2019’s Infest The Rats’ Nest album and (hopefully) an early taste of another dive into microtonal goodness. 2020 has kept the band busy so far, delivering three bushfire benefit albums, as well as their first concert movie Chunky Shrapnel, all the while working on a new album which will be their 16th! release.

Filmed at sunsets during Melbourne’s first lockdown Stu Mackenzie performs alone in the video directed by longtime King Gizzard collaborator, John Angus Stewart. Which features Stu Mackenzie taking his isolation to the sunsetting streets of Melbourne. Recently, King Gizz also shared a live documentary film online in RATTY, which gives fans an insight into the making of the record.

The full video is now on YouTube after originally only being available to view with a small price tag attached to raise money for the Indigenous Social Justice Association Melbourne, BlaQ Aboriginal Corporation, Australians for Native Title and Reconciliation and DJIRRA organisations.
