“Lockless,” the final single and video from Greg Dulli’s solo album Random Desire, makes its debut. The clip was shot by director Bailey Smith in New Orleans at the beginning of the Covid-19 lockdown in March.
“I was in New Orleans during the curfew period after Katrina and would come out into the Quarter about an hour before it lifted, thinking ‘it’s like the twilight zone,’” Dulli remarked. “When this original lockdown occurred, I immediately recalled that moment in time and wanted to document it. Like a lot of cities around the world, the absence of people in normally bustling places is very jarring and ghostly. The song itself suggests a loneliness and I felt the marriage between the song and these images was too perfect not to explore.”
