Timbuktu band Songhoy Blues's collaboration with Iggy Pop gets the coolest treatment by animator Alden Volney.

A series of trademark Volney-esque animated loops captures the mood and spirit of Sahara - a combination of majestic African landscapes and wildlife, banal Western consumerism, iconic guitar-playing and the unmistakeably sinuous body of The Ig.

It's beautiful stuff. So just lose yourself in this perfect accompaniment to the track.

From the director

ALDEN VOLNEY:

“The video deals with the idea of resistance against cultural imperialism, the concept was to use the artwork of the album…I wanted to steer away from something that's even remotely narrative; it felt right to go with something that was more relentless, strange, even fever-dream-like at times."
