Foster The People Drops New Animated Music Video for “Lamb's Wool”
- American alt-pop band Foster The People, consisting of Mark Foster, Sean Cimino, Isom Innis and Mark Pontius, has dropped a new animated music video for “Lamb's Wool”.
The song was released last May from their fourth EP “In the Darkest of Nights, Let the Birds Sing”, which is their first independently EP after leaving Columbia Records in 2020.
The track was written by Mark Foster and Isom Innis. The video was directed by Thomas Jarrett. Animated by Sofja Umarik, Loki Fellows, Callum Welch. Hakim Ismail and Harriet Titlow.
- Frontman Mark Foster shared on social media, “i remember when @isominnis first played me the piano idea and beat. it was soaked in so much emotion and feeling already. i usually connect to the feeling of the music before lyrical ideas come. it was all there. when he told me it was inspired by the life and death of his grandmother that struck a chord with me, and the chorus lyrics came. then we sat on it tinkering for some time trying and trying again to get the rest of the feeling right. when my uncle mike got sick last year, i revisited this idea and the rest of the words poured out. what came of it was a conversation between me, my uncle, and god. a three part perspective on life, death, and what waits on the other side. i felt it was honoring to keep the concept that inspired isom's original idea. this became a healing salve for us to honor the people we've loved, and lost. i'm happy we kept chasing the song and tackled this topic with a gentle touch. it wasn't an easy thing to honestly write about. the subject of death is so challenging to our internal fears, belief systems, and theologies. the best part for me personally, was getting to play the demo for my uncle when the lyrics were finished, before he passed away. it was a special gift for me to be able to communicate my love for him in the best way i know how – through this song.”
