Garbage have made a video for their second single “Magnetized” off their critically acclaimed album ‘Strange Little Birds’.
Shirley Manson - "We made the video for Magnetized at Pancake Mountain Headquarters in Los Angeles with an incredibly gifted team under the madcap direction of my next door neighbour Scott Stuckey. We wanted to create an ode to the magic of science and the mysteries of love.“
On working with Garbage and Shirley Manson, director, Scott Stuckey said –
"Magnetized" is one of my favorite songs on the album - anytime you get to send 300,000 volts of electricity through an 8-year-old Shirley Manson doppelgänger and the real Shirley, then YES, sign me up!”

The album was recorded and produced by the band (Shirley Manson, Steve Marker, Duke Erikson and Butch Vig) in Los Angeles and released via their own STUNVOLUME Records.
