PAVEMENT – ” Spit on a Stranger ” EP

Posted: March 12, 2022 in MUSIC

Pavement are making April 8th a holiday for their biggest fans. Today, they have announced a 12-inch vinyl reissue of their 1999 “Spit on a Stranger” EP dropping that very day alongside the previously revealed massive re-release of “Terror Twilight“. As a special treat, the indie rockers have shared a brand new video for “Harness Your Hopes” as well.

Originally released on CD, the “Spit on a Stranger” EP included the titular single off “Terror Twilight,” along with four previously unreleased tracks. More than two decades after the EP’s release, Gen Z discovered “Harness Your Hopes” after it went viral on TikTok thanks to (what else?) a dance challenge. The new music video for “Harness Your Hopes,” directed by Alex Ross Perry, doesn’t include the dance challenge. Instead, the nostalgic clip features Yellowjackets star Sophie Thatcher getting spliced into classic ’90s Pavement videos like “Gold Soundz,” “Cut Your Hair,” “Rattled by the Rush,” and “Carrot Rope.”

This June, Pavement will play Primavera Sound and NOS Primavera Sound before heading out on the road for a headlining tour in September. 

The “Harness Your Hopes” official music video, directed by Alex Ross Perry and starring Sophie Thatcher. “Harness Your Hopes” is featured on the upcoming re-issue of the ‘Spit on a Stranger’ EP, out April 8th on Matador Records.
