King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Share ‘If Not Now, Then When?’ Single
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard shared a new single entitled, “If Not Now, Then When?” The track was accompanied by an animated video directed by Dr. D Foothead.
The single follows the November release of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s studio album K.G. and live album Live In San Francisco '16. “If Not Now, Then When?” was recorded by King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard multi-instrumentalist Stu Mackenzie and drummer Michael Cavanagh and also features Ambrose Kenny-Smith on harmonica, Cook Craig on synthesiser/vibraphone and Lucas Harwood on bass.
“This song was written pre-COVID, but feels even more potent now,” the band wrote. “Look out your window; the world is on fire.”
“The song made me consider how individual action or inaction affects the world,” Dr. D Foothead stated. “What happens when our repressed pain, darkness and confusion manifest and influence our surroundings and relationships? I wanted to explore the journey of a character who has neglected their inner shadow, and how this energy manifests physically and becomes a force of its own.”
