OK Go is preparing to release their fourth studio album, Hungry Ghosts. A first teaser single, “The Writing’s On the Wall,” was released on June 17. The corresponding music video, structured in the band’s signature single-shot style and featuring an incredible amount of optical illusions, reached more than one million views on YouTube within a day.
