Sturgill Simpson seems like an unlikely anime artist, but his new video for “Sing Along” proves otherwise. Simpson, whose 2016 crossover album A Sailor’s Guide To Earth won a Grammy for best country album that year, has been talked about as the next very big thing in country music for a few years. Now, it seems as if he’s going for something bigger than that.
On September 27, per NPR Music, Kentucky’s Simpson will release a new album and a new anime film on Netflix, both called Sound & Fury. Judging by the video, we are in for some really interesting music and storytelling.
The video release got us thinking about other great animated music videos from unexpected artists like The Shins, to classic Gorillaz and Daft Punk. How about some animated music videos to get you in a good mood?
