March 23, 2012 - Far East Movement’s new video, “Live My Life” (Party Rock Remix) Ft. Redfoo, premieres today on the VEVO (http://www.vevo.com/). Tomorrow, March 24th, Far East Movement will discuss the making of the clip on “10 On Top,” airing on MTV at 11:30AM ET. The video begins rotation on MTV and MTV HITS on Monday, March 26th. “Live My Life” is the first single from Far East Movement’s sophomore album, Dirty Bass, set for May 8th release on Cherrytree/Interscope Records.
Directed by Mickey Finnegan (LMFAO, Cee Lo Green) and executive produced by LMFAO’s Redfoo, the video was shot in Amsterdam, where Far East Movement recently played two sold-out shows on the Cherrytree Pop Alternative Tour. Far East Movement and LMFAO will kick off the tour’s U.S. leg on May 22nd in Columbus, OH.
“We wanted to bring that dirty bass out into the streets of Amsterdam since it’s one of the bass and party capitals of the world,” explains J-Splif.
"Word spread quickly that we were shooting the music video around the city,” says Kev Nish. “Kids were out of school because of a teacher strike, so while shooting the party bus scenes around town and the surprise flash mob in the middle of Amsterdam, there were hundreds of kids on the streets and local news crews chasing the bus, 'livin that life' with us."
The video, written by Redfoo and LMFAO creative director Kelly Covell, features a mash-up of the original “Live My Life” featuring Justin Bieber and flips to a remix with a new verse from Redfoo. The video can be purchased beginning today on iTunes, where both versions of the single are also available.
In its first week of release, the original version of “Live My Life” hit #2 on U.S. iTunes, #1 in five countries (Canada, Mexico, Norway, Finland and Peru) and ranked in the Top 10 in 18 countries around the world. Rolling Stone hailed it as “a huge pop banger that builds on the high energy of the group's previous smashes ‘Like A G6’ and ‘Rocketeer.’”
Dirty Bass will feature a dynamic universal party sound that delivers elements of booming trunk bass music to the dancefloor and continues to push the group’s musical boundaries. In addition to Justin Bieber, other special guests include Pitbull, Bill Kaulitz of Tokio Hotel, Natalia Kills and YG. Far East Movement shaped and co-produced the album’s sound with The Stereotypes and assists from producers RedOne, Sidney Sampson and Martin “Cherry Cherry Boom Boom” Kierszenbaum. Cover artwork and the full track list with other surprise album guests will be revealed soon.
