Tom Waits unveils 'Hell Broke Luce' music video - watch
The track is taken from Waits's Bad As Me album, released last year via Anti Records.
"As most of you guessed, it's a tour... a tour de force!" Waits said of the video.
"Matt Mahurin has created an apocalyptic war dream to accompany the song 'Hell Broke Luce'."
He added: "Kathleen and I envisioned it as an enlightened drill sergeant yelling the hard truths of war to a brand new batch of recruits.
"The video grew from the gnawing image of a soldier pulling his home, through a battlefield, at the end of a rope. I think you will agree, it's uplifting and fun."
'Hell Broke Luce' features Marc Ribot and Keith Richards on guitar, with Flea on bass and Casey Waits on drums.
