Plant recruited graphic artist Shepard Fairey to help make an animated lyrics video for this song. Fairey explained on ObeyGiant.com
, that the clip features images that both he and fellow artist Ernesto Yerena created, many of which were inspired by the photos of Aaron Huey, with the pair have worked on several native rights initiatives.
He added that the visual focuses "on the impact of imperialism on Native Americans, the environment, and sacred natural resources."
Fairey concluded: "I hope 'New World' nudges us to ponder the hypocrisy of some white Americans, all of whom are descended from immigrants, showing too little empathy for current immigrants or the natives whose lives have been tragically impacted by attitudes of European supremacy."
