Mac DeMarco  has released the goofy self-directed music video for “This Old Dog”—watch above to see DeMarco and his friends exploring Los Angeles while wearing dog masks. You know, just a normal Sunday afternoon. In a statement, DeMarco tells the (oddly specific) story behind the song:

A devoted dog discovers the meaning of its own existence through the lives of the humans it teaches to laugh and love. Reincarnated as multiple canines over the course of five decades, the lovable pooch develops an unbreakable bond with a kindred spirit named Ethan. As the boy grows older and comes to a crossroad, the dog once again comes back into his life to remind him of his true self.

DeMarco has also announced an extension of his European and North American tours. Since many shows sold out practically instantly, he’s added a second night for his stops in Montreal, Toronto, Washington, D.C., London and Vancouver. Additionally, a few cities have been added to his September run.

Find out more about DeMarco’s forthcoming album here, and watch him perform the title track in a dog grooming parlor here. Find his extended tour dates and Paste Cloud concert footage below.
