Interpol share a new video for “Passenger,” one of the highlights from their latest album The Other Side of Make-Believe, out now on Matador Records.
Creator and Interpol fan Jamie McDonald had been experimenting with animation and produced the video feeling a special connection with the song. After uploading it to one of Interpol’s social pages, the video came to the attention of the band who loved it and asked if they could use it as an official video.
“Passenger spoke to me,” McDonald said. “As soon as I listened to it, I was inspired. The idea behind the music video visually, is that of a fever dream. We’re exploring the subconscious, delving into dreams, and delving even deeper into nightmares.”
In October, Interpol performed in Austin, Texas, as part of this year’s Formula 1 USGP at Circuit of the Americas. In November Interpol is stadiums and outdoor parks in South America on tour with Arctic Monkeys and playing bill-toping slots at Primavera Sound Santiago de Chile, Buenos Aires, Sao Paolo and Kilkfest Paraguay.
Interpol released their seventh album, The Other Side Of Make-Believe in July 2022.
