Our friends at Babelgum tipped us off to the global premiere of “Skeletons,” the latest video from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ electro-heavy 2009 release It’s Blitz!. The band wrote this song back in December 2007 during a snowstorm up in Massachusetts where they were recording in a barn. “It has a very wintery sort of feeling to it, kind of atmospheric and melancholy — unlike any other song that we’ve written before,” explains Karen O. They plan to digitally release a bundle on February 1 that will include the original song, an acoustic version, plus the video.
Check out the video for “Skeletons” — including the brilliant costuming from Christian Joy (the same designer responsible for the Where the Wild Things Are pop-up shop — after the jump.
