The video for “New France,” Orbital’s recent collaboration with Zola Jesus, doesn’t feature the British rave pioneers or the wailing postpunk queen. Instead, it tells the story of a stuffed lion who comes alive at night, escapes its kid, and attempts to party with a couple of friends before pining for its old life. The fact that this Toy Story story turns out to be pretty affecting is a clear tribute to the masters at work behind this lion puppet. Ian Bucknole directs. Watch it below.
Orbital’s new album Wonky is out 4/3.
