An original pop-art animation for U2's latest single 'Get Out Of Your Own Way'.
Broken Fingaz Crew, the Israeli graffiti collective whose provocative, groundbreaking and often disturbing fluorescent sketches were among the first street art in their native Haifa, have directed U2’s new video for Get Out Of Your Own Way from new album ‘Songs Of Experience’.
Broken Fingaz Crew said:
"The video addresses the current political situation: 2017 for us was the year fascists worldwide felt confident enough to raise their heads again, encouraged by Trump and other world leaders, who use people's fear to build more walls and segregation.
The song is both a personal letter and a clarion cry to the global situation, and in the same way, we've combined our psychedelic pop style with political imagery; shot entirely analogue, using paper cut and stop motion animation techniques in collaboration with Adam Albo, who edited the video.”
In other news, U2 have announced several dates on the UK and Europe leg of the eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour 2018.
