Rolling Stone Premieres New Video From Jason Lytle

Rolling Stone is exclusively premiering the video for “Your Final Setting Sun,” the first clip from the highly anticipated upcoming album by Grandaddy frontman Jason Lytle.

The new record is called Dept. of Disappearance and will be released on October 16 via Anti- Records. Lytle describes “Your Final Setting Sun” as ‘kind of a fast paced western synth rock song. It's the one song on the album that had a film playing along in my head as I was writing it. The chorus came to me while I was driving down a deserted Montana road into a beautiful and spooky sunset.’ Lytles friends from the Swedish band Division of Laura Lee played the bass drums and guitars on the track and he entrusted skateboarder/artist/filmer Mike Aho to create a nice video for it.

LYTLE is in the midst of a series of triumphant reunion shows with his old band Grandaddy. The San Francisco Examiner remarked of their Outside Lands appearance, “imagine an indie rock Beach Boys that sings about small appliances instead of surfing” while the SF Weekly wrote, “There's a beautiful moment just at the end of Grandaddy's set, somewhere around the line, "Did you love this world, and did this world not love you," where Lytle looks down, his trucker hat bill obscuring his face to most of the crowd, and smiles, only to himself. This is how it feels to be back.”

As a solo artist, Lytle has built a catalog of inventive and intensely evocative works. Dept. Of Disappearance is no different. The anticipated follow up to 2009’s Yours Truly, the Commuter, the record is an epic and heart-wrenching accompaniment to one’s life. The album is available for pre-order at href="http://www.amazon.com/Dept-Disappearance-Jason-Lytle/dp/B008RPXPVQ/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1346815789&sr=1-1-fkmr0&keywords=dept.+of+disappearance+pre-order">Amazon> .
