Talk about sticker shock, The Shins’ new video for “Half a Million” features 5,556 stickers of the band performing in various public places. The stickers were filmed via stop-motion. Lamar + Nik directed the video, which you can watch below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates. The Shins released a new album, Heartworms, in March via Aural Apothecary/Columbia.

The Shins have already shared four songs from Heartworms: “Dead Alive,” “Name For You,” “Mildenhall,” and “Painting a Hole,” as well as two separate videos for two separate versions of “Name For You.” They also covered The Smiths’ 1986 classic “Panic” for a live Spotify session and did a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR. Heartworms is the follow-up to 2012’s Port of Morrow. As usual, it was all written by Mercer, but this is the first Shins album since 2001’s Oh, Inverted World that Mercer has also self-produced (with the exception of “So Now What,” which was produced by Richard Swift).
