Jackie Greene will release his new EP, The Modern Lives – Vol 1 on October 13, and the singer-songwriter and guitarist has shared the first single and accompanying video from the album, the first in a collaborative series with Oscar-nominated animator Bill Plympton.

Greene teamed with Plympton for a short film inspired by the EP’s tracks, and the duo shared the first video in the series, for the title track “Modern Lives,” which can be viewed below.

Plympton calls it “the kind of creative project every animator dreams about,” while Greene adds, “I’ve been a fan of Bill’s animation for some time. There’s a unique, independent quality to his work that is mercurial and thought-provoking. I told him to let his imagination run wild and nothing was off limits. Which for Bill, is a normal day at the office.”
