Robin Rhode Tapped for U2 Album Visuals
U2 have tapped 11 urban artists to create a collection of new short films to accompany their latest album, Songs of Innocence. The aptly named Films of Innocence sees release on December 9th and is available to pre-order now on iTunes.
Films of Innocence was directed by Jefferson Hack, and features contributions from Oliver Jeffers, Robin Rhode, D*Face, Mode 2, Chloe Early, Ganzeer, Vhils, Maser, ROA, DALeast and Todd James. Working only with U2's music in mind, the artists were given complete creative control to explore their personal reactions to the songs. As the iTunes description teases, "Their works scale the globe, play with time and weave between heightened reality and animated dreamscapes."
