Idles Return With Video For “Mr. Motivator”

Idles have returned with new Video For “Mr. Motivator.”
Idles "Mr. Motivator"

IDLES are back with a new track, “Mr. Motivator” is a positive jam, that’s also the first preview of their highly third LP due out later this year. The song doubles down on the (self-admitted) sloganeering and social commentary that’s become the band’s signature, yet here more than ever they’re able to take clichés and turn them into music that’s deeply complex and brutally relevant. Listen/watch the accompanying self-directed music video, which features fan-sourced exercise footage and the bandmembers themselves.

IDLES frontman Joe Talbot says of the song: “We want to start this journey with a means to not only encapsulate the album’s sentiment, but to encourage our audience to dance like no one is watching and plough through these dark times with a two tonne machete of a song and the most beautiful community of scumbags ever assembled. Let’s go. All is love.” “Mr. Motivator,” is now out via Partisan Records.
