For a video about death, Flying Lotus's “Never Catch Me” clip is disarmingly fun.

Two insanely talented deceased children come back to life at their very own funeral in the latest video for the rapper/producer's existential-themed album “You're Dead!”, his fifth LP under the FL moniker and first since 2012's “Until the Quiet Comes.” Grammy-nominated MC Kendrick Lamar guests on the track, which includes the lyric, “They say that Heaven's real/Analyze my demise, I say I'm super anxious/Recognize I deprive this fear and then embrace it.” Clap along to the haunting and beautiful clip below.

“You're Dead!” releases Oct. 7. Tour dates further down the page.
