The song is the second track issued from the Atlanta outfit's newly-released seventh album, "Emperor Of Sand." Mastodon recently issued a Robert Schober-directed video for "Show Yourself" ahead of the live debut of the song during a March 17 performance at the SXSW music festival in Austin, TX.

Watch the Kimmel performancehere.
Halsey and Sing J Lee (CHVRCHES/Muse/Years & Years) co-directed the new video which was filmed in Mexico City. Halsey had this to say about the new clip:"The video for 'Now Or Never' (my directorial debut!) is one part in the center of a long narrative that tells the story of two people in love despite the forces trying to keep them apart.
"On its own the song is about two impatient young lovers, but in the context of the hopeless fountain kingdom universe, the stakes are much higher for these two star-crossed lovers." Watch ithere.

I wrote "home" for a friend who passed away unexpectedly. I was in Chicago doing a show at the time and really wanted to write something for him. The piano melody came pretty quick but the rest took some time. I really wanted to let him know that wherever he was, I will always hold him in my heart. It wasn't till I was in a session a year later with a friend Jaylene Johnson that we finished it.
This was not a song I was planning on releasing ever it was something that I needed to get out. Then the opportunity came to work along Metal Health Organizations and help give back to a cause I really care about and was close to me.
The recording process was a lot of fun. I was visiting home at the time (Toronto) and decided to record it at The Orange Lounge Studio. I played it for the producer of the studio Darren Barry who helped make it all happen. He brought in the talented Sean Nimmons-Paterson to play piano and the incredible Simon Huber on Cello.
It didn't take that long to record maybe a couple days all together in the studio. Side note- I am usual in LA when recording my songs so the fun part was my dad Gary Macri (who was a drummer back in the day) got to come hang out at the studio. Having him there while we recorded was really special. I have been trying to get him to play on one of my songs and one day it will happen!
I feel like we all have experienced and will continue to experience loss in our lives, but my hope is that through song, the pain can soften a little more quickly and fonder memories can endure.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourselfright here!
