Foxygen are releasing a new album, Hang, on January 20 via Jagjaguwar. Previously the duo (Jonathan Rado and Sam France) shared “America,” a grandiose track that featured an orchestra, as well as the dance-tastic video for “Follow the Leader.” Now the band have shared a video for another song from the album, “On Lankershim.” The band self-directed the video, which features France singing the song in various Hollywood locations, including outside a DVD rental store (remember those). Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

The band commented on the video in a press release: “We love all those old big budget videos about Hollywood, so we wanted to make our own version of that. We got out the old 66 Mustang and drove around LA and the Valley, getting shots of what LA life looks like to us. We filmed most of it and directed it ourselves, so it would be as close to how we see LA as possible.”

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.
