Watch an exclusive preview of the dirtybird chief's new album, 'Urban Animal,' out September 24.
For his new album, 'Urban Animal,' Claude VonStroke samples and chops sounds and snippets from his outsized life and then tranforms them into something cohesive and beautiful and intriguing. To help explain this concept -- which extends to the album artwork, portraits composed of architectural photos of decaying buildings in Detroit and around the Midwest -- Claude taps the director Anthony Garth (of many a White Stripes videos) for this album preview, which at first seems completely random but then completely makes sense. Sort of. 'Urban Animal' is out September 24, on his Dirtybird label (order on iTunes). Check out tour dates below...
