Where videos for “Midnight City” and “Reunion”, directed by Fleur & Manu, tell the tale of a group of children with supernatual powers running a city, the video for “Steve McQueen” came from the fans. Anthony Gonzalez selected French Director Balthazar Auxietre and Animator Sylvain Derosne’s (who has also collaborated with Spike Jonze) unique vision of a world honoring the “power of childhood, an eagerness for life, and the kind of paradoxical energy you have when you grow up.” Watch their video below.
