Watch the Joshua Ford-directed video for 'Twin Torches', which features vocals and lyrics from Laurie Anderson.

Man Forever have released a 10-minute short film for 'Twin Torches' from Play What They Want, directed by Joshua Ford.

The track, featuring vocals and lyrics from Laurie Anderson, is a "goddam masterpiece," according to tQ's own review:

"The wordless choir and seesawing violin sounding not unlike Sunn O)))'s 'Alice' if free jazz violinist Leroy Jenkins had crashed the session. Colpitts' drumming thunders at a frequency that suggests Tony Allen at his least forgiving, building an iron throne from which Laurie Anderson herself – The Queen Of New York City, her voice as amused and compassionate as ever; Lady Galadriel sat in Central Park feeding the pigeons – gives a spoken word sermon: "What is my name?/Name one star", she purrs."

Play What They Want is out Wednesday 13 June via Thrill Jockey. Read our review here and click here to preorder.
