Butch Vig’s ‘5 Billion in Diamonds’ Reveal Video For ‘Travelling’ + Debut Album Out Tomorrow

With their self-titled debut album out tomorrow (on 100% Records) 5 Billion in Diamonds have revealed the video for ’Travelling‘. The third track to be taken from the album and the first the band wrote, Butch Vig said of the track –

Traveling was the first song we wrote in 5BID. James and I came up with a couple dreamy guitar loops, which inspired Andy to record all these amazing groovalicious keyboards, which inspired me to track some funky drums and to bring Justin Meldal-Johnson (NIN, BECK) in on bass. The track evolved over a couple months, but it wasn’t until Helen wrote and recorded her vocals that the song was completely transformed. Channeling hints of the Cocteau Twins, Free Design and french singers Mireille Mathieu and Francoise Hardy, Helen took the song to another level and raised the bar for all the 5BID songs to come!’
