News | The HU reveals animated music video for ,,Sell The World”
New album Out Now!
+++OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE BY KINDA+++
Globally lauded Mongolian rock sensation and UNESCO 2023 “Artist of Peace” designees The HU have shared their first-ever animated music video for the deeply moving, environmentally conscious song “Sell The World”. It is featured on their sophomore 2022 album “RUMBLE OF THUNDER” and its deluxe version, released earlier this year via Better Noise Music. The compelling animated video depicts environmental villains taking nature’s limited resources for granted and ruining the planet for generations to come.

“The ‘Sell the World’ music video is the first-ever animated music video from The HU”, shares The HU’s producer DASHKA. “It’s our way of expressing the love we have for our earth. From the name of the song to the content of the video, we use sarcasm and exaggeration to show the unpleasantness of the world. It was easier to use the graphics and 3Ds to create visuals for the exaggerated message that the song has in its lyrics. Throughout past albums, The HU’s songs positively reinforce the message of protecting the earth and keeping nature intact. However, on this video we took a completely different, polar opposite approach to the song’s message by reminding listeners of the limited resources of this earth. The female in the video represents the mother earth we are singing about.”
“RUMBLE OF THUNDER: DELUXE VERSION” is available now via digital download or on cd, cassette and various special edition vinyl offerings at HERE. The extended album includes seven new tracks including four acoustic songs and three newly recorded singles featuring guest musicians including William Duvall (Alice In Chains), Serj Tankian, DL (Bad Wolves) and LP.
