When Ariel Pink is not rehearsing with the PS 22 Chorus, giving outlandish interviews or claiming he knows Madonna, he is preparing for the release of his new album pom pom; the follow-up to 2012′s Mature Themes.

He’s already released an official video for “Put My Number In Your Phone” and the audio for single “Black Ballerina.” Today, we get another video for the track “Picture Me Gone.”

The press release states:

The video features the characters Pam, Candace and Heather squeezing into their second lives within a latex skin, in pursuit of sexual encounters and inner content. The latex masks, including one of Ariel’s face were moulded by Hollywood SFX supremo Jeff Farley. Introducing the video, Grant Singer says it “follows a day in the life of three men in Los Angeles in their search of meaning and happiness.

pom pom will be available on November 18 via 4AD.
