Norah Jones "Young Blood" video

Norah Jones debuted The Fall’s fairly non-rock “Young Blood” at Apple’s “Rock And Roll” product conference in September. Now, via iTunes premiere, it has an official video these ten folks can watch on their iPads. The clip was put together by Toben Seymour, a British director and puppeteer, who’s also worked with Moby,, and Kanye West. Unlike the one-woman-and-her-sailing-brownstone vibe of “Chasing Pirates,” these frames include Mondrian-like screen divisions populated with plenty of extras and set pieces literalizing the lyrics. Of course, there’s still plenty of Jones, too. Watch at YouTube, and purchase here.

The Fall is out via Blue Note.

  1. Hi Brandon and Stereogum,

    Thanks for the post!
    A friend from high school just posted a link to this article on my FB and I wanted to let you know that I’m not British. I do work with a number of artists from London and Paris but I am actually from Cedarburg, Wisconsin. Just want to set the record straight. I currently live in Venice, CA but someday I hope to move back to Wisconsin and build a studio out of a barn. Sort of like Edison’s ‘Black Maria.’

    All the best from Toben
