Ahead of the June 3rd release of their sixth full-length album, Ash & Ice, The Kills (Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart) are pleased to share the video for ‘Siberian Nights‘. The third song to be heard from the forthcoming album, ‘Siberian Nights’ was written by Hince, during a solo journey on the infamous Trans-Siberian Express. Directed by Giovanni Ribisi, the video reflects Hince’s “icy, paranoid” vision for the song. Listen to the song on Spotify HERE.
“I’ve always looked at videos from a cultural perspective. Whether it’s about a single, cultural event or some facet of the band. Over the course of making this video, what was there evolved into being something more abstract. However, during its early conception, I was enamored with a John Houston film called The Misfits. Ernst Haas was there during the making of it, taking photographs. His pictures were some of the many references for the video.
The Kills have always been one of my favorite bands. Their music is undeniable. It was a pleasure and a privilege for me to work on this.”
