    Homeland, Laurie Anderson's forthcoming Nonesuch release and her first studio album in nearly a decade, is due out one month from today, on June 22. To count down the weeks till then, Nonesuch Records will release one short video clip featuring Anderson's male alter ego, Fenway Bergamot, every Tuesday now through release day at nonesuch.com/media.

    In these clips, Bergamot, who can be heard on the Homeland track "Another Day in America" and seen both on the album cover and in its DVD documentary "Homeland: The Story of the Lark," muses on various topics related to the album and its take on contemporary American culture. The documentary and these weekly clips were directed by filmmaker Braden King.

    In today's inaugural clip, titled "The Crash," Bergamot revisits the early days of the financial meltdown of 2008. Here, he invokes a classic film trope to warn listeners of the impending doom, exclaiming: "There's trouble out at the mine!" Here it straight from Bergamot at nonesuch.com/media, and head back each week through June 22 for more.
