New Music Video: The Roots - Sleep

The Roots come through with yet another artistic music video that helps tell the story of their concept album's primary character Redford Stephens.  The Clifton Bell directed video for "Sleep," the opening track of the Roots' upcoming album undun, is perhaps the most gripping of them all so far.

Check out the video below, and hit the jump to get a full understanding of The Roots' concept for undun! December 6th!

undun is an existential re-telling of the short life of one Redford Stephens (1974-1999). Through the use of emotives and Redford's internal dialogues the album seeks to illustrate the intersection of free will and prescribed destiny as it plays out 'on the corner'. Utilizing a reverse narrative arc, the album begins as the listener finds Redford disoriented--postmortem--and attempting to make sense of his former life. As he moves through its pivotal moments he begins to deconstruct all that has led to his (and our own) coming undun.
