How do you impress your fans with your first album in over a decade? How about adding the slightly absurd elements of daily life in China? That's what the British rock band Blur did by enlisting Chinese square dancers for their newest music video.
The music video for the band's new single, Lonesome Street, from their upcoming album The Magic Whip, stars San Francisco's Phoenix Fly Line Dancing Group.
It begins with a male dancer performing a solo routine in front of a curtain, which eventually collapses to show a gym full of people dancing along to the jubilant tune.
