Gossip ‘Pop Goes the World’ Video

Gossip are out with the video to their new single ‘Pop Goes the World’, off the American indie rock group’s fourth studio album ‘Music for Men’, out now on Columbia Records. “This song was so incredibly infectious, its pulse so rich that it became so much fun creating a whole world around it,” the video’s director Philip Andelman tells AOL Spinner. “And none of the stories I’d heard could begin to prepare me for working with Beth – she is the most insanely awesome force of energy I’ve ever met. But while she is the gravitational center of the band, Hannah’s sweet, easygoing way and Nathan’s dry sense of humor really made the day one of the most fun sets I’ve ever been on.” Watch it below.
