Puscifer have shared a new video, created by Maynard James Keenan’s 8-year-old daughter Lei Li, for vocalist Carina Round‘s remix of A Singularity.

The song is a dedication to the Keenan family‘s late dog MiHo.

"It’s hard to hear this song without feeling sad about losing Miho," says Lei Li. "Maybe this beautiful video of the stuff we took at the aquarium will help us feel better about her being gone."

Her father adds, "I helped my daughter, Lei Li, edit this clip in iMovie. Not bad for an 8-year- old.”

Speaking earlier this year about the loss of his beloved dog, Keenan said: "On Oct. 7, 2021, I lost my Muse. Deadly Little MiHo lost her 2 year battle with pancreatitis and kidney disease. We thought we lost her in late 2019, so I panicked and wrote her this song. We were certain she was done for. But we were blessed with a second chance and a bit more time. I rarely share things like this. Too painful. But this one can’t be kept bottled up.

As I have mentioned before, she has been hiding in most of my vocal tracks since 2005. She was either in or near the vocal booth every time I tracked. Her sigh, her bark, sniffle, sneeze. Her jingling collar. Her squeaky toys. Usually poorly timed."

The song features on Puscifer's remix album Existential Reckoning: Rewired, which also features tracks reimagined by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, Queens Of The Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen and Radio 1 DJ Daniel P. Carter.

Existential Reckoning was released in October 2020
