(Radio.com) The Shins release a new video this week for a track called "Dead Alive". Calling it, a "Halloween gift" it's a fun nod to the fright-filled holiday and a look at what happens "when daydreams become nightmares."

"Dead Alive" is a rabbit hole of a video with each scene coming back at some point from a different perspective. Creepy things happen when James Mercer falls asleep on the couch while watching Halloween-themed programming. As he dreams, he finds that his world has become a miniaturized toy version and it continually clashes with a more giant world where people tower over everything. Things get even more twisted when he becomes a skeleton.

In the video, the band continues teasing "I Gleek On Your Grave." The phrasing shows up on a poster in Mercer's home as well as on a drive-in movie screen. That may be the name of their next single or their upcoming album, but it's something they've been sharing with fans more and more lately. Watch the video here.
