The Shins have released a lyric video for the new single “Mildenhall” from the forthcoming album Heartworms. Shot in black and white, the video features a wandering James Mercer in England as he reflects on the place he once called home: Royal Air Force Mildenhall in Suffolk where his father was stationed. Deeply autobiographical in nature, “Mildenhall” explores the idea of home and the enduring influence of life abroad at the precipice of adulthood, chronicling his process of self-discovery both as a person and as a musician. Check out the video below.

Heartworms arrives on March 10th on Aural Apothecary/Columbia Records. Grab your copy of the album HERE.
