Car Seat Headrest Announce New Album “Making A Door Less Open”, Unveil New Video for “Hollywood”

By: Staff –

Car Seat Headrest have unveiled a new song, “Hollywood” alongside a Sabrina Nichols-directed video and an acoustic version of the song, watch it below. “Hollywood” is taken from the band’s forthcoming new album Making A Door Less Open, set for release May 1st on Matador Records.

“This song is about Hollywood as a place where people go to make their fantasies come to life, and they end up exploiting other people and doing terrible things to maintain their fantasy,” says bandleader Will Toledo, whose alter ego Trait appears in the video in animated form. “There’s this terror you’re going to lose the fantasy, and you’re going to have to face the facts, and some people will do anything to avoid facing that. It’s about that fear, and the pain of being subjugated to someone else’s fantasy against your will, and it’s all tied together under this banner of this physical location of Hollywood that we all know about and dream about, but none of us really want to think about what is going on behind the scenes there.”

The band also unveiled the digital tracklist for Making A Door Less Open. Preorder across all formats, with distinct track listings and mixes for digital, CD and vinyl, here. “Hollywood” follows previously released tracks “Can’t Cool Me Down” and “Martin”.
