Watch the new Chad VanGaalen-animated video for Tanya Tagaq and Shad’s ‘Centre’

Melody Lau

Earlier this month, Tanya Tagaq released a new track called "Centre," featuring Shad, from her upcoming album Retribution (out Oct. 21). Today, Tagaq released a brand new video for the song, which was illustrated by artist and musician Chad VanGaalen. In true VanGaalen fashion, the video is a trippy and colourful animation that warps from frame to frame, fitting Shad's lyrics perfectly. 

"I was really just led on by the intro Shad rap at the beginning into the abyss of cosmic pleasure realms," VanGaalen told Stereogum. "It was my mission to bring those words to life and not understate what they both were doing with the song. Truth be told, I would have enjoyed having a full year to work on it, but the world doesn't wait for oil paint anymore."
