Psychobilly trio the Reverend Horton Heat released a new music video for “Whole New Life,” an upbeat ditty completed with clicking upright bass and dancing fowl.

In the clip, frontman Jim Heath sings his heart out while ripping into his Gretsch G6120RHH Reverend Horton Heat Signature Hollow Body with Bigsby.

“Got some crazy little chickens out in the yard at play, but there’s an old chicken hawk just a watching them through the day,” he sings, and then promises, “I’m gonna shoot at that bird and make it go away.”

To underscore his lyrics, a giant dancing chicken is often seen swinging and shaking along to the groovy number.

“Whole New Life” is the title track of the band’s upcoming album, due out Nov. 30.
