New music videos of the week: MGMT, Erykah Badu, Justin Bieber, Weezer
Tuesday 30 March 2010
Video premieres of the week include Justin Bieber's teen-love "Never Let You Go," Jamie Lidell's lo-res "The Ring," Erykah Badu's provocative "Window Seat," MGMT's trippy "Flash Delirium," and Weezer's tour doc "I'm Your Daddy."
Justin Bieber: "Never Let You Go"
"Never Let You Go" is the latest video to come from the Canadian pop singer's album My World 2.0, released on March 23. The clip features 17-year-old actress Paige Hurd as 16-year-old Bieber's love interest.
Jamie Lidell: "The Ring"
British soul singer Jamie Lidell is set to release a new album, Compass, in May, with guest performers including Beck, Feist, and Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor. "The Ring," from that album, was shot in grainy double vision on a beach in Western Australia.
Erykah Badu: "Window Seat"
From forthcoming New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh), "Window Seat" features the neo-soul singer undressing while walking through downtown Dallas, making reference to Matt and Kim's "Lesson Learned" video (Badu consulted the duo before shooting the video, reports Rolling Stone) and the 1963 shooting of JFK.
MGMT: "Flash Delirium"
In "Flash Delirium," from Congratulations, Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Martin Goldwasser of MGMT pay a visit to a country mansion for a trippy family gathering. Ventriloqists, tracheotomies, eels, and gas masks all find their way into this comical, horror-inspired clip.
Weezer: "I'm Your Daddy"
This video clip, featuring the second single off Weezer's Raditude album, includes footage and images taken from the band's past year of touring and other activity, cultimating with a January 2010 show at Florida State University.
