This clip for the second single of Mark Ronson’s highly anticipated new album, Record Collection, due for release on September 27, is the perfect backdrop to the catchy beats of The Bike Song.

The five minute video is a whimsical retro melange of super-hero, underdog, heist and summer romance themes, centred around the latest hipster accessory — the vintage bike — all in glorious technicolour. The clip features Ronson himself as well as the song’s guest artists Kyle Falconer (The View) and Spank Rock, and is directed by Partizan’s Warren Fu, who also directed the clip for Bang, Bang.
