Mickey Mouse and the Goodbye Man was released as a download and 12″ vinyl on 12 th July . Along with the album version of Mickey Mouse and the Goodbye Man, the 12” format include exclusive tracks and a brand new remix by Josh Homme.
“It’s quite fitting that that song has an animated video because the yin-yang extremes there of the two brothers are Mickey Mouse and the big bad wolf; those are kind of cartoonish characters, so it all fits in very nicely.” – Jim Sclavunos
The video is created by Ilinca Höpfner whose artwork is featured in Grinderman 2. Recently out of German art school she was discovered when she sent a black and white video for a Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds track to Nick Cave. Nick then called her to ask her to do one for a Grinderman track. “She has done this incredible job of it. Her drawings are really gorgeous things.” – Nick Cave. The rest, as they say, is history.
