No, you didn’t misread … the Doors, whose lead singer died more than 40 years ago, have released a new music video. No, it isn’t a reforming of the band with some American Idol alum or anything like that.
According to the info for the video:
Professional skateboarders Kenny Anderson, Alex Olson, and Braydon Szafranski take viewers on a “Doors-centric” skateboarding tour of Los Angeles.
If you head to their Facebook page you get this description:
The Doors are thrilled to premiere a brand new video for “L.A. Woman!” The video was directed by two-time Emmy® nominee Matt Goodman and includes a new single version of “L.A. Woman,” marking the first time this iconic track has ever been released as a single! The video finds professional skateboarders Kenny Anderson, Alex Olson, and Braydon Szafranski taking viewers on a “Doors-centric” skateboarding tour of Los Angeles. Their L.A. journey is filled with stops at many iconic spots from The Doors’ storied career, from Venice Beach to Hollywood. Viewers will be treated to many Doors references, ranging from obvious to subtle, as well as several cool “blink and you might miss them” cameos – see if you can catch them all!
The Doors released the 40th Anniversary edition of L.A. Woman back in January.
Also back in January the three remaining members of the Doors teamed up with Skrillex on a song called ‘Breakin a Sweat’. Here is the video:
