Armand Hammer have shared a new song, “Doves,” featuring Kenny Segal and Benjamin Booker. It’s a bonus track that’s been added to digital versions of their latest album, We Buy Diabetic Test Strips, on streaming services. It arrives in the form of a short film directed by Ryosuke Tanzawa, depicting the duo of billy woods and Elucid in New York City in winter. Check it out below.

Tanazawa said in a statement, “Sage Elsseser, also known as Navy Blue, connected me with Woods last year, and I was very much looking forward to doing a video for Armand Hammer (Tabula Rasa & Stone Fruit are important tracks me) but I never expected something 9 minutes long, with basically everything…it’s quiet and loud, intimate and vast, beautiful and ugly – all of those things in one. I was a bit intimidated by the scale of the track at first and asked Woods to give me some time to think about whether I would be the right director for the project. When  I went through my archive of black and white photos and started testing them out, laying them over the singing parts of the track, I felt like ok — this is going to work. So I called Woods and told him I wanted to do it. It turns out we had more or less the same idea of where and how to film him and Elucid. In the end, me and my producer Sean, with an arsenal of cameras from super 8 to iphone, shot it over the course of 3 days on a snowy January week.”
