Primus Release Video For Willy Wonka Themed 'Candy Man' (Top Story)
The typically eye-catching promo is directed by Ivan Landau, Edgar Alvarez and Webster Colcord and features the journey of a boiled sweet as it's picked up off the street by a boy.
Claypool tells Bass Player: "When we finished up the last album cycle, I had this idea of taking on some sort of sacred cow, either with my band or with Primus. And then when Herb came back, we were all excited about Primus.
"I always had the creepy Candy Man idea in my head, so it kind of stemmed from there. Every year, we do a New Year's show with a theme, so last year we decided to do the Wonka theme and play some of the songs from the Wonka soundtrack in our own way.
"Next thing I knew, we were doing the entire record. It just fell together so nicely. It's one of the smoothest undertakings I've done in a long time." Watch video - here.
