Pavement announce Spit On A Stranger reissue & share video for ‘Harness Your Hopes’

Pavement have shared a new video to B-side ‘Harness Your Hopes,’ directed by Alex Ross Perry (Her Smell) and starring Sophie Thatcher (Yellowjackets). The song is drawn from the Spit on a Stranger EP, which Matador Records / Remote Control Records will reissue as a 12” on April 8th alongside the release of Terror Twilight: Farewell Horizontal.

‘Harness Your Hopes’ was originally released in 1999 on the CD-edition of the Spit on a Stranger EP, which included the titular Terror Twilight single plus four previously unreleased tracks. Needless to say, the song’s “hit-potential” was misjudged at that time. In 2020 – for reasons that remain mysterious – ‘Harness Your Hopes’ became something of a viral sensation on streaming services and Tiktok, ultimately clocking tens of millions of listens.
