To count down to the release of "Accelerate," a website has been created at www.ninetynights.com. The site features a new high-definition video snippet each day that can be downloaded then edited, embedded, or manipulated however the user wishes. The clips were shot by noted French filmmaker Vincent Moon, who has worked with Arcade Fire, The Shins and The National among other artists. Each snippet is being posted in high-resolution HD format and available for download for a period of 24 hours before being archived on the site as a low-resolution stream.
