Somebody has finally convinced David LaChapelle to direct another music video, and it isn’t Rihanna.

After a five-year break from the music-video game, the coveted photographer and director (along with his trusted choreographer John Byrne) has delivered arresting visuals for Florence + the Machine’s “Spectrum,” the newest single off the band’s Ceremonials.

The clip offers your eyeballs such theatrical imagery — leaping ballerinas, topless pharaohs,  art-deco sets — that Florence Welch’s scene-stealing red hair is one of the video’s tamer elements. Check out the “Spectrum” video for yourself:
