Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind have released a video for Sex Robot, the first track to emerge from the band's upcoming CollectiV, the follow-up to their 2017 debut Super Natural.   

Sex Robot is a searing chunk of fiery blues'n'roll, described by the band as "an unholy and provocative collision of sci-fi and horror movie tropes, animation, sexuality and third-eye imagery."

“It’s a visual, stream-of-consciousness collage of ideas,” says Jones. “Real men's guts vs. the pistons of industry! The current robots are strong enough to kill a person, who is really in control?

"We’re looking at the notion of artificial intelligence and pondering the point that it’s only a skip and a jump into emotional awareness, consciousness, and it’s own desires.”

“Does the AI servant develop his or her demands? Is that good or bad?” 

CollectiV is released on March 8, and is available to pre-order now. Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind are on tour from March (dates below).
