Yeah Yeah Yeahs “Despair” Music Video

Yeah Yeah Yeahs Despair Music Video

Patrick Daughters directs yet another Yeah Yeah Yeahs rather awesome new video for “Despair” filmed in part at the top of the Empire State Building at sunrise. He also worked with the band on the videos for “Maps,” “Turn Into,” “Date With The Night,” and “Gold Lion” but this one was obviously a career topper, especially for Karen O who said she had “a ‘the impossible is possible’ moment up there with Nick and Brian. If someone would have sat us down at the Mars Bar years back and told us that we’d be performing our music on the top of the Empire State Building one day, we probably would have thought that’s the stuff that dreams are made of, not us, no way.”

Watch the video below and catch the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on tour next month in Toronto.
