Lambchop's new single 'Little Black Boxes' - out now!

September 06, 2022

Today Kurt Wagner shares 'Little Black Boxes', the third single from Lambchop’s next album, The Bible, due September 30 on City Slang (Merge Records in North America). It arrives with a computer-generated video directed by Isaac Gale, who also handled the striking visuals for previously shared singles 'Police Dog Blues' and 'So There'. CGI-Kurt's dazzling moves are fitting of the most dance-infused Lambchop track to date, a soulful choir lifting electronics and sweaty disco skyward.

Speaking of the track Wagner says:
"This song was created in a hot, sweaty, smokey, room on a mid-July evening, filled with six or seven sweaty people, four or five laptops, a piano, a smoke machine, and some laser lighting all throbbing to an undeniably infectious groove, it’s a wonder we all survived. But here we are. Lightning in a beer bottle."

Video director Issac Gale says:
"We wanted to see if we could get anywhere close to something "cinematic" with this video, using only 3D assets and digital filters. So we set an impossible goal and picked the greatest concert film ever shot - Shake! Otis Live at Monterey - as our target. It's got the best chaotic energy in both the performance and the camera work."
