The DJ and producer, who has previously supplied remixes for Depeche Mode, La Roux and Gorillaz, has teamed up with one third of Swedish House Mafia, Steve Angello, for new single 'Open Your Eyes'.
The clip, which sees a human fighting a robot in a boxing ring, was directed by Peter Serafinowicz, whose credits include Black Books, The IT Crowd and 2009 movie Couples Retreat.
In a behind-the-scenes preview of the promo, Metric said: "Today I have been an evil scientist. My job seems to be holding a clipboard and repairing the robot.
"We had a few treatments come in for the video and as soon as this one landed on my desk everyone was really excited about it."
"The referencing is amazing and the cast that [Serafinowicz] brought around him... is fantastic," he continued. "To have someone like Peter on board directing it, I couldn't have hoped for a better video."
'Open Your Eyes' is released on May 8. Watch the backstage footage below:
