A month after Foster the People delivered their trippy new single, “Imagination,” they’ve unveiled an equally reality-bending music video.
The Mark Foster-directed clip, released on Thursday (Aug. 1) shows the frontman sitting on a chair in a black-and-white room. He opens his shirt to reveal his heart, which depicts a vibrant, colorful scene of a young Foster playing in a field with butterflies. Reality and imagination then overlap at the end, as the bleak room suddenly becomes kaleidoscopic and surreal.
“I think the quality that makes us distinctly human is our ability to live in duality,” Foster previously said of the song. “We comprehend the present external world we’re in, while having an internal dialogue about what it all means.”
“Imagination” is a follow-up to the band’s singles “Style” and “Worst Nites.” Watch the music video below.
