Australian dance duo Empire of the Sun are releasing their third album, Two Vines, on October 28 via Astralwerks. They have already shared the album's first two singles, "High and Low" and title track "Two Vines." Now "High and Low" has a crazy big budget looking video. The band directed and produced the video in partnership with Roof Studios, Sunset, and Bill Yukich. A press release describes the video as "a psychedelic journey through space and time, through a waterfall of dreams, beyond the white light of an ice curtain where in lies a lush, green world where an intricate living forest and ancient wisdom form to create an out of body experience." Watch below.

Empire of the Sun is Emperor Luke Steele and Lord Nick Littlemore. Littlemore had this to say about the song in a press release: "Imagination is something that we've always nurtured and promoted and however one achieves that ecstatic madness of being is fine. It can be love to some people, it can be taking a walk in nature, or it can be scaling the heights of a psychedelic experience. As artists we like to live on the edge. I guess this song is about finding some equilibrium there."

The follow-up to 2013's Ice on the Dune, Two Vines is due out October 28 via Astralwerks. Empire of the Sun is Emperor Luke Steele and Lord Nick Littlemore. The album also features Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham, Wendy Melvoin (from Prince's band The Revolution), and two members of David Bowie's Blackstar band (pianist Henry Hey and bassist Tim Lefebvre). Two Vines was co-produced by Empire of the Sun and Peter Mayes (Sia, the Killers) and recorded in Hawaii and Los Angeles.
