On the producer’s fourth studio album, ‘Mayday’, Boys Noize confronts the life-invasive topics of surveillance and freedom. Producer Boys Noize, in collaboration with Oliver Stone, references these issues in the official video for ‘Mayday’ released today. This is one of the first music videos featuring film from the director in 25 years. In addition to new Boys Noize score compositions, ‘Mayday’ is featured in the movie Snowden and its video contains exclusive footage from the film, which hits theatres today.
Frequent Boys Noize collaborators LIL INTERNET and Susboy created the music video for the album title track, which combines Snowden film footage with public global surveillance camera footage, and startling NSA facts. In earlier statements, Alex Ridha, aka Boys Noize said this: “The album title ‘Mayday’ refers, appropriately, to the international distress signal. “Mayday is my warning signal against blind categorization and conformist synchronization,” says Ridha. “A call for individuality and diversity – and a tribute to outsiders.”
Boys Noize’s album ‘Mayday’ is out now through Pod / Inertia.
