A Perfect Circle, ’3 Libras’ – Video of the Day
A Perfect Circle have just released their ‘Three Sixty’ compilation, which showcases the meat of the band’s three full-length albums along with a few surprises included as well. To celebrate A Perfect Circle’s new release, we’ve named ’3 Libras’ our Video of the Day.
The 19-track ‘Three Sixty’ compilation comes with the brand new song ‘By and Down,’ a cover of Joni Mitchell’s ‘Fiddle and the Drum’ and three additional live renditions of APC fan favorites. One of these tracks is ’3 Libras,’ a haunting story of feeling overlooked from A Perfect Circle’s debut album, ‘Mer de Noms.’
The official music video for ’3 Libras’ starts in a swanky hotel, beginning to tell the tale of a number of characters. The main protagonist, however, is a young boy with a model ship who passes by Maynard James Keenan, Billy Howerdel and the other members of A Perfect Circle. The lonesome child offers to share his ship with three young girls, and that’s where things get weird.
’3 Libras’ is unique because Maynard Keenan is heavily showcased in the video, although his face is always at least partially obscured. We also see both Maynard and the young boy in womb-like structures after the child falls into the water while reaching for his ship. Maynard exits the water, only to quietly march through a masquerade ball. There’s a lot going on in ’3 Libras,’ so we’ll let you check it out for yourself.
