NEW MUSIC: ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER - Long Road Home
21 Oct 2020
OPN released video for his new track 'Long Road Home' ahead of the release of his new LP!
Ahead of the release of his new LP, Oneohtrix Point Never shared the video for his latest release 'Long Road Home'. With self-titled album 'Magic Oneohtrix Point Never' set for release next week, on 30th October, OPN has been giving previews of his first new music since 2019 with the opening trilogy from the album.
The video, co-directed by Charlie Fox (UK) and Emily Schubert (US), pays tribute to Georges Schwizgebel's 1982 short film Le ravissement de Frank N. Stein, which will be familiar to fans following it's feature on the cover of his 2013 album R Plus Seven.
Fox and Schubert said on the concept: "It's a romantic fable about love and transformation, which grew out of a lot of wild philosophical conversations with Dan over the summer. We wanted to take these supposedly grotesque or demonic creatures and turn them into the weirdly adorable and heartbreaking protagonists of this courtship ritual. For a song that seems to be sung by something mutant and magical in a time when intimacy is craved and feared, it felt like a hot match; it just felt good inside. And all this stuff started oozing out."
