Rodrigo Amarante has broken free of Little Joy and Los Hermanos for the time being to make a new solo record. Cavalo is out now on Easy Sound and, according to Amarante, was “made during an unexpected but very welcome exile in a land I wouldn’t predict I’d moor my boat for long but that, given such difference and a refreshingly nameless arrival, gave me the opportunity to re-cognize my nature, to recoup my ascendance, and to disclose a new perspective over myself.” Below, A.V. Club readers can check out the exclusive premiere of the video for “Hourglass,” one of the album’s standout tracks.

Amarante is touring this summer, with dates listed here.
