A year after her album Pang, Caroline Polachek has shared an extended mix of album intro “The Gate” (via her Orchard imprint Perpetual Novice). According to a press release, Polachek mixed the new track, which has “textural contribtuions” from Oneohtrix Point Never and Danny L Harle. “The Gate (Extended Mix)” also arrives with a music video by Ezra Miller. Watch below.

“In the original version of the song, the closing lyric (‘Finally, there’s a way/To be both free and safe’) are the words I’m waiting to hear, but never do,” Caroline Polachek said in a press release. “The extended version of the song then is a sort of parallel universe or alternate ending, where those words not only arrive, but ring true.”
