Next month will see the release of Let's Cry and Do Pushups at the Same Time—the latest full-length effort from Luke Wyatt under his Torn Hawk alias—and ahead of its arrival, the multidisciplinary New York artist has unveiled the visual single for LP cut "Acceptance Speech." "By playfully making reference to its own artificiality," a press release states, "the imagery accompanying the track holds a mirror to the chunky digital processes used in its own making." Mining a similar vein to previous releases on L.I.E.S., 1080p, and his own Valcrond Video imprint, Wyatt's forthcoming album reportedly takes influence from movies and television (unsurprising, given Wyatt's parallel projects in video) while continuing to explore the convergence of "aesthetic irony with compositional sincerity and emotional vulnerability."

Let's Cry and Do Pushups at the Same Time is officially due out via Mexican Summer on November 10, and the video for "Acceptance Speech" has been posted below.
