OK Go is back with its first official video in two years for “The Writing’s On The Wall.”.
“The Writing’s On The Wall” is the first single from the band’s new album, Hungry Ghosts, which will be released on October 14 by Paracadute via BMG. While the song, which was heard in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, concerns a relationship that may be at its end, the dizzying video, packed with optical illusions that blur the line between reality and imagination, affirms that OK Go is still very much in love with the video-making process.
Directed by Aaron Duffy, OK Go’s Damian Kulash and Bob Partington, “The Writing’s On The Wall” is the first video shot with the yet-to-be-released Panasonic LUMIX GH4, which utilizes 4K video recording technology. Like all of OK Go’s videos, “The Writing’s On The Wall” is a single shot video. However, preparations for that single shot took two months and involved 61 run-throughs. The anamorphic illusions seen on screen are a tip of the hat to artists Felice Varini, Georges Rousse and Dan Tobin-Smith.
OK Go will perform on the outdoor stage of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on July 22 and the band’s new EP “Upside Out” is available now! The band announced the first leg of its fall tour, which will include a sold-out evening at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom (September 19). OK Go will kick off its summer tour on July 15. Fans will be treated to an all-new live show, packed with surprises and new interactive elements.
