Up to now it’s been the star-studded collaborations and the quality tunes that have had people buzzing about N.A.S.A’s The Spirit of Apollo. This time another element has been added to the hype equation with the video for "The People Tree." The track sees David Byrne on vocals along with Chali 2na, Gift Of Gab & Z-Trip, but it’s Marcel Dzama’s art in the video, directed and animated by Syd Garon and Johannes Gamble, that hogs the spotlight.
As David Byrne says, "Here is the voice of God speaking through an old Oak tree- which seems perfectly right…and it complements the song perfectly, as do the ghosty spermy spirits at one point."
The Spirit of Apollo is released today on Anti.
