Casablancas released his most recent album ‘Tyranny’ with new band The Voidz in October 2014. The ‘Human Sadness’ clip was recently premiered at screenings in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Denver, Washington DC, Boston, Miami, Nashville, and Montreal from May 20-26.
The clip for ‘Human Sadness’, which evokes the style of classic rock videos, is interspersed with war footage and scenes from modern urban life. It stretches to an epic 13 minutes in length. Watch in full below.
The Strokes made their live return earlier this month (May 8) at Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Festival. See photos of the gig here. They are also set to play their first UK gig in five years when they headline the British Summer Time Festival in London’s Hyde Park on June 18.
