OK Go is back with a new album - Hungry Ghosts (Paracadute/BMG) - and to celebrate, the band is unleashing a multitude of associated projects across a broad range of disciplines.
On 27th October morning OK Go unveiled the video for "I Won't Let You Down," the second single from Hungry Ghosts, during a visit to NBC's "TODAY." The clip, which can be viewed at okgo.net, was lensed in Japan's Chiba Prefecture in August 2014. In preparation for the album's release, OK Go approached Honda through their friend, creative director Morihiro Harano, with the idea to collaborate and produce a music video. The resulting clip was shot using a custom "multi-copter camera" developed for the project. In OK Go's signature style, the action is captured in one single shot. It was directed by OK Go's Damian Kulash and Kazuaki Seki, with creative direction by Morihiro Harano (of Mori Inc.). Honda lent the band the futuristic UNI-CUBs seen in the video. The UNI-CUB is a unique omni-directional driving wheel system that is currently in the development stage.
Details for the band's 2015 headline theatre tour - which will kick off on March 21, 2015 at The Warfield in San Francisco, CA - will be announced shortly. In the meantime, fans can see
OK Go performing on "Late Show with David Letterman" on Tuesday, November 11 and at two special events: an October 29 Q&A/performance at Los Angeles' GRAMMY Museum® and a November 14 appearance at the Fitzgerald Theater in St Paul, MN with comic Hari Kondabolu on NPR's "Wits," a live public radio show that mixes improv, sketch comedy, conversation and music.
