Dan Deacon Debuts “When I Was Done Dying”

Dan Deacon shares his new video for the single "When I was Done Dying"

Dan Deacon has shared his new music video for ‘When I Was Done Dying,’ directed by Adult Swim’s Off the Air.

The video’s an exquisite corpse style of collaborative animation, with one of nine animators, each handling their own thirty second segment of the song. It marks the first time for both Deacon and Off the Air to work on a music video in this style, but the second time they’ve collaborated on a music video, following the video for 2012’s America’s “USA” 22 minute orchestral suite.

All this week at 4am ET/PT, Off the Air will be airing episodes featuring both collaborative music videos alongside work from the animators involved in the “When I Was Done Dying” video.

After playing release week shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York in late February, Deacon heads out on a North American headlining tour next week.
