2CELLOS Release Evocative, Cinematic Video For "They Don't Care About Us"



NEW YORK, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- 2CELLOS, music's most electric and dynamic instrumental duo, release a captivating new music video for "They Don't Care About Us" by Michael Jackson.  In the manner of such dystopian sci-fi films as The Hunger Games and Divergent, Luka and Stjepan have created an evocative, cinematic video filled with destruction, fire, and striking imagery to convey a powerful message: pointless war leads to devastation. Check it out here.

The video opens with Luka and Stjepan dressed as opposing soldiers who not only represent pawns in a chess game, but pawns in war as well.  The pieces symbolize individuals who are helpless against government rule and the influential elite.

2CELLOS new album Celloverse (Portrait/Sony Music Masterworks) is available now.  Self-produced by Sulic and Hauser, Celloverse showcases 2CELLOS' unique ability to reinvent current and classic rock/pop songs, starting with "The Trooper Overture," a metal-meets-classical mash up of Iron Maiden's hit and Rossini's "William Tell Overture." The album includes their take on AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" (video has 38 million views!), the hit pop song "Wake Me Up" by Avicii, "I Will Wait" by Mumford & Sons and Michael Jackson's "They Don't Care About Us." Rounding out Celloverse is the Paul McCartney classic "Live and Let Die," with special guest Lang Lang and the title track, an original song penned and arranged by 2CELLOS.

2CELLOS are the first instrumentalists to be featured on Glee.  They have also appeared on the Today Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Tonight Show, and The Bachelor Live Wedding Special.  Their self-titled debut album and IN2ITION are available on Sony Music Masterworks.

Sony Music Masterworks comprises Masterworks, Sony Classical, OKeh, Portrait, Masterworks Broadway and Flying Buddha imprints. For email updates and information please visit www.SonyMasterworks.com.
