After months of waiting, we FINALLY have a video for Devendra Banhart’s single from last year’s album What Will We Be. Banhart rocks his best attempt at Zappa facial hair and takes us on an other worldly journey with some very special guests. MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden, The Strokes’ Fabrizio Moretti and The GZA all appear on Banhart’s journey through the depths of space, partying it up with some eccentric animated characters along the way. Check out the video for yourself:
