Though they’re stuck in the house, Cage the Elephant have stayed productive during quarantine. The band recently shared their new video for “Black Madonna” made entirely over Zoom.
The band explains the idea behind the surreal video in a statement:
“In a time where people are looking for connection more than ever, and with it not being possible, it forces a new perspective. This music video was directed by lead singer Matthew Shultz and edited entirely over Zoom during the quarantine/social distancing. The project started when COVID-19 began gaining traction and forced remote production so we repurposed a lot of existing never-before-seen footage/up-cycled content to make something new.”
The band continues: “Additionally, we worked with 15 collaborators over the past 8 weeks to have them contribute or create content, also while in isolation. The collaborators included some of the top up-and-coming photographers and directors across the globe (i.e. Josh Charow, Andrea Gavazzi, Landon Yost, Citizen Kane Wayne) all the way to an award-winning Guggenheim fellow and Academy Award-nominee, Kasumi.”
