New Single - Mickey Mouse & The Goodbye Man, out 13th June!

“I was Mickey Mouse! He was the big bad wolf!”

Mickey Mouse and the Goodbye Man will be released as a download and 12" vinyl on 13th June. Along with the album version of Mickey Mouse and the Goodbye Man, the 12” format will include exclusive tracks and a brand new remix by Josh Homme.

You can pre-view the trailer for the hand drawn animated video by Ilinca Höpfner here: http://bit.ly/gfw5bP 

“It's quite fitting that that song has an animated video because the yin-yang extremes there of the two brothers are Mickey Mouse and the big bad wolf; those are kind of cartoonish characters, so it all fits in very nicely.” – Jim Sclavunos

The video is created by Ilinca Höpfner whose artwork is featured in Grinderman 2. Recently out of German art school she was discovered when she sent a black and white video for a Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds track to Nick Cave. Nick then called her to ask her to do one for a Grinderman track. She has done this incredible job of it. Her drawings are really gorgeous things.” – Nick Cave. The rest, as they say, is history.
