A video for Night Flight To Kabul, taken from the upcoming Mark Lanegan Band album Somebody’s Knocking, has been shared.
“The artistry and genius of Dean Karr is what made this video happen,” Lanegan says of the promo and its director. “5,000 still photographs taken in eight hours were painstakingly put together to give the appearance of a strange wraithlike figure moving weirdly through the desolate landscape of the Salton Sea. My third video with Dean in three different decades and I have to say this was the best. The most artistically challenging and satisfying.”
“We had been talking about doing this video for Night Flight to Kabul for a month or two and my only concern was how could I pull this off with such a challenging budget for my friend?,” Karr adds.
“Being a photographer before I was ever a director, I decided to use my Nikon D810 still camera for the entire music video and turn it into animation throughout the entire clip. What a simple solution!”
Somebody’s Knocking is due for release on October 18th via Heavenly Recordings.
