Hiatus Kaiyote, the hugely influential twice-GRAMMY-nominated band are following up their already hugely influential & critically acclaimed album “Mood Valiant” with the release of forthcoming Halloween inspired single ‘Canopic Jar’.  ‘Canopic Jar’ sees the band delve further into their wild sonic palette & expansive creativity. The single release will be accompanied by an official music video by director Jeremy Koren, who also directed the official music video, taking viewers on an absurdist sci-fi trip for the lead single ‘Get Sun’ (ft. Arthur Verocai).
