Zeds Dead debut Blame music video premiere

‘Visually, I wanted to channel the look an an ’80s space opera,’ director Chris Yee tells EW

Canadian EDM duo Zeds Dead will release their new studio album, Northern Lights, on Oct. 14. The project features a bevy of high-profile guests — from Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo to Pusha T — and the duo released “Blame,” a collaboration with Swedish singer Elliphant and superstar producer Diplo, in July. They’ve now shared a dramatic animated clip for the cut.

“With the music video, I wanted to channel in on the vicious cycle and nature of self-destruction — whether it comes to a weekend rager, technological development versus nature, or current events in youth versus authority,” says director Chris Yee. “Visually, I wanted to channel the look an an ’80s space opera.”

Earlier this year, Elliphant made waves with her infectious, Azealia Banks-assisted cut “Everybody.” Northern Lights will also feature Jadakiss and Twin Shadow.
