Regina Spektor released her new album Remember Us To Life last week, and today she’s sharing a video for “Small Bill$.” It’s a vivid real-life/animation hybrid that starts off in a bear-populated city and ends up under the sea with a bunch of mermaids; Spektor herself pops up as various characters throughout. “The ‘Small Bill$’ video takes place in a magical world of bears, nesting dolls and mermaids,” she explained in a press release. “We had fun green screen filming and exploring hand drawn animation, hair and make up transformations. Steven Mertens (who happens to be an art friend all the way back from college days at SUNY Purchase, and played bass in the Moldy Peaches along with my husband Jack Dishel :-) ) directed it in LA.” Watch below.
Remember Us To Life is out now via Sire/Warner Bros Records.
