Work It Out
Check out RJD2's new single Work It Out from his most recent album 'The Third Hand'.
RJD2 teamed with dance and media artist Bill Shannon for the 'Work It Out' video. Shannon, born with a degenerative hip condition, developed a way to express himself through dance (and even skateboarding) on crutches. Director Joey Garfield took to the streets of New York and captured one continuous shot of Shannon, injecting RJD2 into random roles throughout the video.
Pushing the boundaries of music even further, for The Third Hand, RJD2 seemingly abandons all the notions and titles that have been placed upon him over the past six years. For the first time on an RJD2 record, live instruments have come in to play as well as the samplers/sequencers, electric pianos, thunderous drums and subtle guitars, plus RJD2's own voice. Combined, it all adds another dimension to the music of RJD2.
The novel's author saw a cut of the film and loved each of the changes the movie's director had made.
