King Khan & The Shrines return with an eclectic video for their new track, 'Born To Die'. King Khan enlisted the Berlin-based, Hylas Films for directorial duties and explains, "Ultimately, I wanted to pay tribute to Alejandro Jodorowsky who is one of my spiritual gurus and one of the greatest film makers of all time."
Directed by Hylas Films in Berlin.
King Khan & The Shrines' 'Born To Die' single is taken from their new album 'Idle No More' out now on Merge Records.
The garage-rock animals King Khan & The Shrines’ new video for their pounding rave-up “Born To Die” pays tribute to Alejandro Jodorowsky, the Chilean psychedelic surrealist filmmaker whose movies are holy texts for stoners worldwide. The clip, directed by Hylas Films, piles on the weirdly eroticized imagery — powdered wigs, machine guns, electric chairs - and Khan himself plays a Minotaur. -- Stereogum
