Spike Jonze-directed Kanye West video gets release date

The short film is due out next month

A long-form video starring Kanye West and directed by Spike Jonze is due to be released next month, the director announced on his blog.

The video, titled ‘We Were Once A Fairytale’, is due to be released via US iTunes on September 8. It takes its name from the lyrics of West‘s song, ‘See You In My Nightmares,’ which appears on his 2008 album ‘808s & Heartbreak’.

The video clocks in at approximately 15 minutes and is more of a film that features the song than a video for the tune, reports Rolling Stone. It is said to feature West starring as himself in a scenario that involves getting drunk at a club and taking a woman home before he realises he’s actually having sexual relations with a pillow. It also shows the star vomiting rose petals, and carving out a rodent from his own hand.
