When Joe Walsh, Glenn Frey and Don Henley of the Eagles wrote Life in the Fast Lane in the late 1970s, little did they know how fast that lane would become. In an Amazon world where we can order anything online and have it delivered within a few hours, our expectations have changed. We live in an “everything, all the time” world. Even the speed at which we watch and listen to online content has changed. Speed-watching has become a thing.

Space is the place once again in the new Broken Bells video, which finds the duo of James Mercer and Danger Mouse exploring the final frontier with a slew of found footage as they perform “Control,” off their latest collaboration, After the Disco . Although the clip doesn’t have much to do with the epic alien love story the duo told in the “Holding On for Life” video , it features clips of Broken Bells cranking out the funky, punch-drunk cut alongside a montage space-related footage, from sun flares and moon missions, to crop circles and pictures supposed UFOs – some of which feature the spiky pink sphere that’s become the duo’s emblem.

Broken Bells, the collaborative project between Danger Mouse and the Shins’ James Mercer, return February 4th with the new album After the Disco, which augments the bands melodic psych-pop with jittery grooves and sleek synths – and it shows that the duo are serious about being more than just a one-off side project. “It’s a pretty sad record,” Danger Mouse tells Rolling Stone . “It’s pretty bleak in a way. We used the same couple of guitars, the same bass, the same drums, maybe two or three synthesizers at most for the whole album. I like the idea of two guys being able to make something that sounds really big.” We spoke with Danger Mouse about After the Disco , his friendship with Mercer, producing the new U2 album and more.
