Cut Copy shared a new song, “Airborne,” a couple of weeks ago. It is out now digitally via Astralwerks and was one of our Songs of the Week. It’s also the band’s first official single in four years and their first release for Astralwerks. Now the band has shared a video for “Airborne.” In it frontman Dan Whitford wanders around a dinner and supermarket in Barcelona, when he encounters a strange man in a yellow raincoat with powers. Who knows what it’s all about, but watch it below to discover for yourself. Gerson Aguerri of the Barcelona-based production company CANADA directed the clip.

Whitford had this to say about the video in a press release: “The video for our song ‘Airborne’ is probably the most interesting and most challenging that I’ve ever been involved in. It was shot in Barcelona, all through the night for three days running and culminated with a final scene with me having not slept for 24 hours and playing a piano on the back of a moving truck. To say it was a once in a lifetime experience is no understatement! Despite the sleep deprivation, Gerson and his team at CANADA did a fantastic job bringing this surreal story to life.”

Ben Allen (Deerhunter, Animal Collective) produced the song, which could be the first single from the Australian band’s next album, the follow-up to 2013’s Free Your Mind, or it could just be a standalone single.
