Zeds Dead and Diplo's new music video channels '80s action cartoon themes

It should come as no surprise that the official music video for a collaboration between Diplo and Zeds Dead would look like a montage of scenes from the 1981 animated film Heavy Metal. Neither act is a stranger to incorporating such visual themes into their brand, so the video for "Blame" featuring Elliphant makes for a fitting addition.

Zeds Dead and Diplo first released "Blame" two months ago, and the former act announced that the song would appear on their upcoming album, Northern Lights. The video uses retro-focused animation techniques to depict colorful scenes of intergalactic warfare.

Northern Lights will likely come out sometime before the end of the month, as the Zeds Dead tour of its namesake kicks off in Baltimore, Maryland on September 29th. As for Diplo, the bass music icon revealed in an interview with Zane Lowe that his next album under the Major Lazer moniker, Music Is The Weapon, won't come out until January 2017.
