I thought it might be a nice idea to commemorate the historic Irish marriage referendum taking place earlier this week with a visual representation of the complex ideas of what love is courtesy of Owen Pallett. The Canadian singer/songwriter describes the ‘The Passions’, off his critically acclaimed 2014 album ‘In Conflict’, like this:

“I wrote ‘The Passions’ after a period during which my definitions of “love” were being redefined. Queers are united by our desires, by our prioritization of the needs of our bodies and souls over the needs of tradition and societal structures. But I feel there is more to it than that. Our lovers are our family, our brothers and sisters as well as our sexual partners. ‘The Passions’ is about the blurry distinction between these definitions.”

Watch the promo video for ‘The Passions’ below. ‘In Conflict’ is available now on Domino Records.
