The Black Lips Are BusyBy Vice Staff
Good news, gang! We are a gang, right? Of course we are. So listen, the Black Lips have a lot of crap going on today, and since they are in our gang too, we’d like to tell you about it. First up, their song “New Direction” is the Song of the Day on Amazon. Not sure how much you know about the Internet, but that’s sort of a big deal. You can download it for freesies right here.
Also, if you haven’t already bought the new album, it’s on sale today for $7.99. Them MP3s are going like hotcakes though, so you might want to giddyup.
And on Monday, the Lips are premiering their video for “New Direction.” We’re playing this one pretty close to the chest, so all we can tell you is that it involves a trampoline, a green screen, and it is good. Like real good. Here is a picture to prove it:
