Kayak premiere animated video for La Peregrina


Kayak have released an animated video for their new track La Peregrina.

The full 12-minute version will appear on the band’s upcoming studio album Seventeen, which will launch on Friday (January 12) via InsideOut Music. The new video comes in at just over six minutes and gives a flavour of the album version.

The Dutch outfit revealed the track Feathers And Tar in November.

Founding member Ton Scherpenzeel says: “La Peregrina is the story about the merciless passing of time and the vanity of man, as observed by the legendary pearl that represents eternal beauty.

“It watches the rise and fall of kings and serves to enhance the status of queens who wear it, and knows all their secrets.

“An intriguing idea that inspired me to write this longest epic on the new album.”

Seventeen, which is now available for pre-order (opens in new tab), also comes with a second disc featuring a selection of demos. Find the cover art and tracklist below.
