Broken Bells, the collaboration between musician/producer Brian "Danger Mouse" Burton and singer/guitarist of the Shins, James Mercer, are back again! The duo have recently released a short sci-fi film that features music from their upcoming album, After The Disco. Although a full track listing and official release date have not been confirmed, After The Disco is due to be in stores by January 2014. Small snippets of the upcoming release are used throughout the video.
The short film is based on a story written by Burton and was directed by Jacob Gentry (The Signal, Last Goodbye). The film also features Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Like Crazy) and Kate Mara (House of Cards). The story follows a lonely and tired office worker named Oliver who encounters a batter and abandoned astronaut, Helen. The two spark a romance while curiously traveling the terrain.
