The Roots will be releasing their next album …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin on Monday, but today, in anticipation of their forthcoming LP, the band released a video for their song, “Understand.” Featuring colorful, stop-motion animation, and a clear message concerning life, death, and money, the clip serves as a vibrant setting for the group’s standout cut.

Directed by Joe Baughman, and featuring a hook from Dice Raw, the video is a fitting supplement for …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin‘s conceptual conceit. Watch the entire video above.

…And Then You Shoot Your Cousin will be released May 19 via Def Jam.
