Don't know how we managed to miss this, the Fray's video for its version of "Heartless," the Kanye West cover, but we just came across it earlier today, and you know what? It's a pretty swell video. Directed by Hiro Murai (Bloc Party) and produced by Ross Girard, featuring animation from Titmouse Inc. and Cinematography from Ibis, the clip is probably the most visually captivating the act has produced so far. Admittedly, we're animation geeks, though, too, so take our fawning for what it's worth. See the full clip after the jump, along with bonus footage of the band in the studio recording the track.
