mxdwn.com AARON GRECH writes......Musician, composer and member of Oingo Boingo, Danny Elfman, released a new song called "Sorry," which is out today via ANTI-. The performer has also released its music video directed and animated by Jesse Kanda, who has worked with the likes of Arca, FKA Twigs and Björk.

"Sorry" is hard hitting new song with industrial guitar riffs, moments of eclectic alternative pop vocals and a grandiose, cinematic feel that is backed by strings and pounding drums. The animation sees a black amorphous blob form numerous winged figures, and body shapes, which is cut between creepy images of Elfman singing.

"‘Sorry' was the first song I've written for myself in a long time," Elfman explained in a press statement.
