Mac DeMarco has performed new song ‘No Other Heart’ on a rowboat in a live session.
The Canadian singer-songwriter recently released new mini-album ‘Another One’, from which the song is lifted.
In the video, shot by NPR, DeMarco reveals that he bought the boat on his birthday this year when he was feeling “the birthday blues”, proceeding to go on a “night time cruise” rather than phoning his family.

‘Another One’ follows on from 2014 LP ‘Salad Days’, NME‘s Number Two album of last year. “It’s all love songs this time,” DeMarco told NPR of the record. “It’s just kind of like every angle of how somebody might feel if they’re having strange feelings in their chest.”
Mac DeMarco has been busy of late. Just last month he dropped a nine-track instrumental album called ‘Some Other Ones’.
New track ‘My House By The Water’ ends with an invitation to DeMarco’s home in Arverne, a neighbourhood of Queens in New York. He says on the song: “Stop on by, I’ll make you a cup of coffee. See you later”.
DeMarco recently revealed that “about 30 kids” have taken him up on the offer after he revealed his home address in the track.
Speaking previously to the Wall Street Journal, DeMarco explained: “The way I rationalise it… to have the address you’ll have to listen to the album to the very end.”
“Second, to even consider coming to my house you have to be a kind of superfan. And thirdly, it’s in such a weird part of New York that if they actually get there, they deserve a cup of coffee.”
He also recently told Billboard: “I’ve had about 30 kids come over so far. I don’t know what I was thinking.”
“Everybody has been nice, but I asked a kid the other day, ‘Did you check if I was on tour, or did you just come over blindly?’ And they were like, ‘We just came over.’ These kids came from Long Island and Staten Island. They took the train for two hours. You didn’t even think to check if I’m on tour?”
Mac DeMarco has also recorded a cover of Eric Clapton’s 1996 song ‘Change The World’. The track will appear on a forthcoming cassette compilation released by The Editorial Magazine.
