The clip is directed by Danny Clinch, who directed the band's Immagine In Cornice concert DVD as well as John Mayer's Where The Light Is and Foo Fighters' Skin and Bones.
Lightning Bolt, which is the band's first album since 2009's Backspacer, will be released on October 14. The band is currently on the road in the US through December, and will headline Australia and New Zealand's Big Day Out festival in January.
