Foxygen released a new album, Hang, back in January via Jagjaguwar. Now they have shared a video for “Avalon.” It begins with the band’s Jonathan Rado and Sam France disagreeing on who should direct the video between the two of them and what direction the video should take. “I blew off an audition for the next David Lynch film to be here,” says France. Then it launches into full-fledged musical mode, with Rado directing, before France takes over. Watch it below.

Previously the duo (Jonathan Rado and Sam France) shared Hang‘s “America,” a grandiose track that featured an orchestra, as well as the dance-tastic video for “Follow the Leader” and videos for “On Lankershim” and “Upon a Hill.” They also shared a new song “Be Yourself” from An American Girl Story TV special, as well as a cover of Jessica Pratt’s “On Your Own Love Again” for Amazon’s Songs of the Summer playlist.

Foxygen’s last album was 2014’s ...And Star Power. A previous press release described Hang as “their first proper studio record.” Every song on Hang features a 40-plus-piece orchestra arranged and conducted by Trey Pollard. Matthew E. White also did additional arranging. The Lemon Twigs (aka brothers Brian and Michael D’Addario) were the band’s rhythm section, which makes sense since Rado produced their recent debut album, Do Hollywood. Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips also guests on select tracks.
