In the lyrics to “Outta My System,” My Morning Jacket’s mid-tempo standout from last year’s Circuital, Jim James details a number of activities that he should no longer participate in. And, the video for the track adds another one to the list: jumping into glowing holes in the ground that are possibly caused by meteors. Has he not seen Chronicle?
Luckily for us, James and his furry boots do jump in to the hole and the video for “Outta My System” begins its wild ride through an animated underworld run by a wizard who looks exactly like Zach Galifianakis. Watch the playful clip, directed by James Frost, below.
My Morning Jacket has also announced an Outta My System EP, which will be released tomorrow (Aug. 7) and features remixes of the tune by Washed Out and TV on the Radio’s David Sitek. You can hear the Washed Out contribution by heading over to My Morning Jacket’s Facebook page.
