The video, directed by Christopher Hill, sees a long-haired Skarsgård playing a bare-chested cult-leader figure on a commune. 'Free Your Mind' is the title track from the Australian electronic band's fifth album, which will be released on November 4.

The single premiered at six specific locations worldwide in September, when fans were asked to visit selected billboards in Mexico City, Chile, Australia, Detroit, California and one in the UK at Blaneau Gwent in South Wales.
