On Oct. 2, John Cale is set to release a new solo album, Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood. Cale is best known for his work with The Velvet Underground, but has since led an impressive career as a solo artist. One of the album’s tracks, “I Wanna Talk 2 U,” on which he collaborated with Danger Mouse, has already been released, and now we have a music video for another, “Face to the Sky.”
The video features a seemingly disoriented Cale twirling around a mock chess board with an interpretive dancer. In the song, Cale repeats the line, “Dizzy as a top on a chess board.”
Listen to “I Wanna Talk 2 U” and watch the video for “Face to the Sky” below.
