Published Oct 14, 2020Daniel Lopatin is set to release a new Oneohtrix Point Never called Magic Oneohtrix Point Never right before Halloween. In keeping with the season, his new music video for the album's "Long Road Home" is creepy as all hell.
The animated clip sees a pair of seemingly evil creatures hanging out inside of the cover art for Oneohtrix's 2013 album R Plus Seven, but they eventually showcase a softer side as they seem to make love in their own creepy way.
The video was directed by Emily Schubert and Charlie Fox, who shared the following statement:
It's a romantic fable about love and transformation, which grew out of a lot of wild philosophical conversations with Dan over the summer. We wanted to take these supposedly grotesque or demonic creatures and turn them into the weirdly adorable and heartbreaking protagonists of this courtship ritual. For a song that seems to be sung by something mutant and magical in a time when intimacy is craved and feared, it felt like a hot match; it just felt good inside. And all this stuff started oozing out.
Magic Oneohtrix Point Never arrives on October 30 via Warp Records.
