The Strokes have shared a new video for their The New Abnormal track “The Adults Are Talking.” In the visual, the band faces off against a team of robots in a baseball game. The Strokes lose 56-1 but celebrate like they’ve won the World Series. Watch the Strokes’ video, directed by Roman Coppola, below.
Roman Coppola directed several videos from the Strokes’ Is This It: “Last Nite,” “The Modern Age,” “Someday,” and “Hard to Explain,” which he co-directed with Johannes Gamble and Julian Casablancas. Coppola also directed the video for Room on Fire’s “12:51.”
The Strokes released The New Abnormal—their sixth album and first in seven years—in April. They were musical guests on Saturday Night Live earlier this month, performing “The Adults Are Talking” and “Bad Decisions.” They released the video for The New Abnormal track “Ode to the Mets” this summer.
