Last month, FADER Label released "DTM," the first single off innovative rocker Alan Vega's posthumous album IT. The Suicide singer, 78, passed away in 2016 and a new video for "DTM," which is premiering on The FADER today, captures him in his full glory. In the clip, directed by Brook Linder and produced by The FADER, footage provided by Marc Hurtado and The Cars's Ric Ocasek gets distorted into something completely new that showcases Vega's intense skills as a showman.
“He always said the turning point for him as an artist was seeing Iggy Pop perform,” said Liz Lamere, Vega’s wife and musical collaborator. “Initially Alan's main focus was visual art, but he knew in order to push himself as an artist, he needed to do the one thing that he never thought he would ever do...become a singer and performer.”
