Watch: The Rentals unveil video for new track ‘9th Configuration’

An eerie track about an abandoned castle

The Rentals have unveiled a lyric video for their new track, “9th Configuration.”

The track is inspired by both William Peter Blatty’s book Twinkle, Twinkle, Killer Kane and the film The Ninth Configuration. Frontman Matt Sharp sings of an abandoned castle that has been converted into a military psychiatric hospital, delivering lines from the point of view of the book’s protagonist Colonel Vincent Kane. “9th Configuration” features Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, who creates an eerie instrumental packed with warped electric guitars and synths.
