From his perversely beautiful tune-age to his killer fashion sense, Turin-based, Tennessee-born Yves Tumor — a.k.a. Sean Bowie — has been kinda UNASSAILABLY AWESOME for a while now.

So it kinda goes without saying that, when he announces a small round of fall world tour dates — with the likes of Blood Orange, no less — peeps are already pretty much 100% $OLD.

But since he can’t resist going above and beyond the call of duty, Bowie has sweetened the announcement even more by sharing the new video for his latest single on Warp. “Licking An Orchid Ft. James K” was “written, arranged and produced by Yves Tumor” and co-produced by Justin Raisen — and, in addition to drums by Evan Johns and bass by Luke Niccoli, it (well, duh) features vocals by Yves Tumor and James K (I know: these sound like some pretty ROCK AND ROLL details for a Warp single, but don’t worry; the song is still equal-parts minimalist, hypnotic, and terrifying).

You can watch the Daniel Sannwald-directed video clip for “Licking An Orchid Ft. James K” down below and grab the single RIGHT NOW from Warp.

You cannot, however, go see Yves Tumor perform live around the world until at least next month. So, don’t even try (believe me, I already did; and it didn’t work AT ALL).
