The Black Lips release their latest video for the track “Raw Meat” from their upcoming sixth studio album, Arabia Mountain. The video for “Raw Meat” features the band in the role of New York City cops on a late shift causing more of a ruckus than the citizens they’ve promised to protect. Sort of reminiscent of the police involvement with the #OccupyWallStreet movement. The video features Leo Fitzpatrick (The Wire, Kids), model Janell Shirtcliff, cult actress Tennessee Thomas (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World), crisp B&W widescreen photography, and authentic 70’s cop car and uniforms. The track itself is a stand out featuring production from Mark Ronson. The clip is the product of a collaboration between the Black Lips, Vice Records, Urban Outfitters, and director Phil Pinto, executive produced by Rachelyn Remz-Porter. It is the fifth installment of the UO Music Video Series, following videos for Spank Rock, The War on Drugs, Beach Fossils, and Toro Y Moi.
Co-produced by Urban Outfitters as part of the UO Music Video Series. Read an interview with the director and band tomorrow at blog.urbanoutfitters.com.
