On Tuesday, IMDb will for the first time host an exclusive world premiere of a music video: the biker flick homage “Dilly” from the Band of Horses.

“This is the first of our videos to truly capture the essence of what a day in our personal lives is actually like,” Band of Horses singer Ben Bridwell said.

“We couldn’t be more proud or more excited to be taking our first step into the realm of music videos with Band of Horses,” said Col Needham, founder and CEO of IMDb.

“We believe IMDb can serve as a powerful new platform for musicians to introduce compelling, exclusive content to our passionate community of more than 100 million entertainment enthusiasts,” he continued.

Directed by Philip Andelman, the 3 ½-minute video was shot on location in the Mojave Desert. It is a companion to the “Dilly” track off the band’s self-financed Infinite Arms album that was released May 18 on Brown/Fat Possum/Columbia.
