After releasing a weird teaser video for his first single Figure It Out last week, we now get a new clip of the same song as a slightly longer version, but now with animated lyrics. The single has been taken from his upcoming new solo album Harakiri, due out this July.
Harakiri will be Tankian’s third solo effort. After releasing the lyric video for the song today, we can now get an opportunity to check out the song in its entirety. Tankian has described the new album as being more punk orientated, and you can quite clearly see that in this first single.
It will contain 11 tracks mostly written in 2011, which he claims was the busiest and most productive year of his life: touring SOAD; performing with the Opera Orchestra in Yerevan; Armenia; performing his first ever concert in Lebanon, with the Lebanese National Symphony Orchestra; and writing four records, including a jazz record and an electronic record he wrote with his friend Jimmy Urine of Mindless Self Indulgence.
