Broken Bells, 'The High Road': Watch the first video from Danger Mouse and the Shins' James Mercer

Posted on

The chocolate-and-peanut-butter pair-up that is Broken Bells, the new collaboration between intrepid producer/50% Gnarls Barkler Danger Mouse (a.k.a. Brian Burton) and indie-rock archduke/Natalie Portman life-changer James Mercer, debuted its first video today, for the woozy midtempo rocker “The High Road.”

Renowned music-video director Sophie Muller (No Doubt, Coldplay, Shakira, the Killers) helms the clip, a Blue Velvet-y road trip adventure enhanced by a non-committal showgirl, a toy car, and an untethered white horse:

The duo’s self-titled debut (pre-order it here) is out March 9; will you be waiting with bells on, broken or otherwise?
