Multimedia project The Bullitts' new single, 'Landspeeder', is available to download on iTunes; it is taken from the debut album, 'They Die By Dawn and Other Short Stories', which is due for release later this year.
The video for 'Landspeeder' was directed by Jeymes Samuel. The video opens onto an alien landscape, with the sun setting as a spaceship travels through the desert setting. Throughout the song, the video frequently shows the alien scenery as Samuel stands on a cliff and delivers the gritty song.
London based group The Bullitts was formed by producer Jeymes Samuel and incorporates a gritty narrative with music; the social network Twitter and video streaming website YouTube. 'They Die By Dawn and Other Short Stories' tells the tale of murderess Amelia Sparks who is facing execution on Death Row. Amelia is narrated throughout the tale by 'Charlie's Angels' star Lucy Liu and her diary is presented and updated regularly in short instalments and in real time through Twitter.
Lucy Liu is not the only famous name attached to Samuel's brainchild. Other celebrities include 'The Wire' actor Idris Elba, who plays a detective involved in Amelia Sparks' case, Saul Emmanuel; singers and artists such as Mos Def, Tori Amos and Jay Electronica also feature on the album.
