Publish date:

King Features and dBpm Records are combining forces for a series of firsts, with the release of a new cartoon and animated music video for rock band Wilco, featuring Popeye.

The video for Dawned on Me shows Popeye vying for Olive Oyl's affections with his usual nemesis Bluto, and a new challenger, Wilco front man Jeff Tweedy.

The collaboration is one of the first music videos Wilco has released since 1999 and it presents the band to the masses in a fresh, new way: as animated images side by side with Popeye, Olive Oyl, Swee' Pea, Wimpy and Bluto.

The music video also marks the first new Popeye cartoon since Popeye's Voyage: The Quest for Pappy, the 3D CGI TV special and DVD release by King Features for Popeye's 75th anniversary in 2004.
