The video for John Lennon's "I'm Losing You," from the late Beatle's recently released Anthology box set, features animated versions of some of Lennon's famous line drawings. The video, directed by Dean Karr, premiered Thursday on VH1. Animator David Spafford expanded on Lennon's art and interspersed the results with live shots of the track's backing band, which includes Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen (guitar) and Bun E. Carlos (drums), and Tony Levin (King Crimson) (bass), according to Capitol Records publicist Audrey Strahl.
