Garbage’s Record Store Day Release ‘The Chemicals’ Gets a Video

Watch Garbage's new video for 'The Chemicals'

Garbage have unveiled the video for their latest track ‘The Chemicals’, featuring Brian Aubert from Silversun Pickups.

The video is being released to celebrate Record Store Day, and the single will be available on limited editon 10″ vinyl during Record Store Day weekend.

Shirley Manson discussed the collaboration with Aubert  with Mashable, saying: “It’s something we’ve sort of begun as a tradition from our days of doing duets with people we really love and admire, and this time around we wanted to collaborate with Brian just because we’ve had the pleasure of bumping into him on the circuit. He and I met doing a benefit at the Pablove Foundation a few years ago now, and we just love him,” she continued. “We love his energy and he’s really funny and an amazing talent and an incredible singer. And we love that he sounds androgynous — you don’t know what he is. You don’t know whether he’s a girl or a boy a lot of the time, and I love that.”
