The Strokes suit up and take to the baseball diamond in the rock band’s new video for “The Adults Are Talking”, which was shared this week. The song appeared on the veteran rock band’s Grammy-nominated studio album, The New Abnormal, which arrived earlier this year back on April 10th via Cult/RCA Records.
Similar to their other song from The New Abnormal tracklisting in “Ode To The Mets”, the new video for “The Adults Are Talking” is heavily themed around baseball. This time around, members of the band square off against their robotic opponents in some kind of retro-meets-futuristic game of baseball, where they’re joined on the darkened field by Beck, who happens to make a cameo as their first base coach. The band doesn’t seem to have much success at first (they are musicians after all, not athletes) but somehow find their way home to win the game, and celebrate accordingly.
Watch the band’s new baseball-inspired video for “The Adults Are Talking” as directed by Roman Coppola below.
