Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark - "History of Modern (Part I)" (video)

Here is the official video for OMD's latest single, one of the two title tracks for last year's History of Modern. It was directed by a Swedish team that won a band-sponsored contest. To these eyes, the win was well-deserved.

"History of Modern (Part I)" is released February 28. Like OMD's previous single, it appears in remixed form. Apparently the band's contract has a stipulation that all singles will be released in altered versions that include dated "club-friendly" elements. Oh, well. Still a good song.
