Adam Green, formerly of The Moldy Peaches and current art-folk veteran, is readying his ambitious retelling of the tale of Aladdin, his second feature film due out in spring of 2016. His video for new track “Never Lift A Finger,” premiering on The FADER, offers a preview of his surreal paper-mache pantomime. Adam as Aladdin chases his elusive Jasmine through colourful caves and painful memories and sets a new standard for backup dancers while doing so.
“With Aladdin, I wanted to create a single and unified experience to showcase my music, art and writing,” Adam told The FADER. “When creating Aladdin, I approached the script like it was a song. It has been the creative journey of a lifetime, and I’m so excited to put this out!”
The film will feature appearances from Zoe Kravitz (Divergent), Devendra Banhart, Macaulay Culkin, Natasha Lyonne (Orange Is The New Black), Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development), and Francesco Clemente, the artist.
