Shepard Fairey and Nicholas Harmer for Death Cab For Cutie's "Home Is A Fire"

Juxtapoz // Monday, 09 May 2011

The good people of BoingBoing just passed along this new music video that Shepard Fairey and Death Cab bassist Nicholas Harmer did for Death Cab For Cutie's "Home Is A Fire." The video world premiered on BoingBoing today.

Shepard says of the band and video, "I have been a fan of Death Cab for years so I was excited to hear from bassist Nick Harmer about his idea to collaborate on a video piece for their song Home Is A Fire.

I love the democracy of music and I'm always excited to bundle visual art with great music. Nick sent me the lyrics to Home Is A Fire and they evoked the duality of "home" both as a place you inhabit, and also as a place that inhabits or traps you. One's relationship with home might be complicated, but ultimately it can be a two-way dialogue, of which we can at least affect one-way."

Thanks to BoingBoing
