Randy Newman

"Putin" (video)

A couple weeks back, Randy Newman shared a bewildering new tune about Russian President Vladimir Putin, and now the track has been treated to an accompanying music video.
The aptly titled "Putin" was inspired by a meme-worthy photo of the shirtless leader on a horse, but the video uncovers plenty of other pictures of Putin. The collage-style clip compiles shots of him doing everything from wearing hats to fishing to speaking to the masses, each image presenting a pretty literal interpretation of the song's lyrics.

The Randy Newman Songbook collection is out now, and Newman recently hinted that a new album would be on the way soon.
