Haley shares music video for 'Credit Forever Part 2' from upcoming LP 'Pleasureland'
'Credit Forever Part 2' is the latest single to be previewed from Haley's upcoming instrumental album 'Pleasurland', set for an October 12 release.
Minnesota-based artist Haley, known professionally as Haley Bonar for the past 15 years, is all set to release her new album 'Pleasureland' on October 12 via Memphis Industries.
A follow up to 2016's highly acclaimed 'Impossible Dream', the new album sees Haley take an interesting hard left turn as she takes the instrumental route on her album, with absolutely no vocals - a move that she admits is a purely political decision, representing the subdued voice of women following the 2016 presidential elections. Between then and now, the singer-songwriter legally changed her name from Haley Bonar to Haley McCallum -- taking on her mother's maiden surname -- and adopted the stage-name Haley.
Featuring long-time collaborator and guitarist Jeremy Ylvisaker, Steve Garrington (Low) and saxophonist Mike Lewis (Happy Apple, Bon Iver), the stark, minimalist, and melodically entrancing 'Pleasureland' is a pleasant surprise from the Candian-born artist and deals with many unpleasant themes. Pre-order the album here.
'Pleasureland' was previewed by the single 'Infinite Pleasure Part 2', a two-minute cathartic oasis of noise symbolic of all the excesses of the modern capitalistic landscape. Now, Haley has followed the single up with another teaser from the album, 'Credit Forever Part 2', which comes with its very own music video via Audiofemme.
The fast-paced and darkly humorous 'Credit Forever Part 2' comes with a series of jump-cuts of television commercials and news coverage from the summer of 2001, complete with gritty lo-fi production value. Portraying an American landscape vested in capitalism, product placement and consumerism while sinister political forces simmer underneath, Haley encapsulates the year she graduated high school and moved to Minnesota, just days before the events of September 11.
Each of the 12 tracks on "Pleasureland' comes with its own visuals made by Haley as well as a handful directed by familiar collaborators and friends and all of them will be released on the same day as the album release.

Haley will also be supporting the album with a stretch of tour dates that kick off on Oct. 4 at Trylon Cinema in Minneapolis, MN. She'll then hit a number of venues across the UK, before a stand-alone gig in Amsterdam and coming back full circle back to Minneapolis on Dec. 8.
