The visual, directed by Jennifer Juniper Stratford, stars Cage the Elephant’s Matt Schultz and Beck and uses antiquated video technology and decades-old special effects and to tell a sci-fi story.
“For ‘Night Running,’ I wanted to create a realm where a super computer that hosts a simulation program that creates a series of artificial worlds,” Stratford said in a statement. “While Beck would appear to live within the software as a master control, while Matt would be transported to different worlds and new identities leaving him to question what is real.”
Beck and Cage the Elephant will re-team this summer for the extensive co-headlining “The Night Running” tour, which begins July 11th in Ridgefield, Washington. Beck recently unveiled the Pharrell Williams co-written single “Saw Lightning,” off his upcoming LP Hyperspace.
