Sammy Hagar and The Circle have revealed another new music video from their new album, Space Between.

The new single, "Affirmation," is the ninth track on the concept album, which explores the crippling effects of greed.

Like with the previous two singles for Space Between, "Trust Fund Baby" and "Can't Hang," Hagar tapped Chickenfoot guitarist Joe Satriani's son ZZ Satriani to write and direct the music videos.

The short film for "Affirmation" includes footage of actors playing out the drama, as well as clips of Hagar and The Circle in the studio and performing live on stage at the Troubadour in Los Angeles and at the iHeartRadio Theater in Burbank, California.

Hagar told Billboard, which premiered the video, that his vision was to create a short film for the entire album. He says he put all his trust in ZZ.

"I gave him a whole bunch of money and said, 'Go crazy!'" Hagar said. "The reason I like this movie is it gives the album more legs. It's not just a record, and when you see this movie you're gonna go back and listen to the record and go, 'Oh!' It elevates your listening and viewing experience."

Hagar hopes the movie will eventually make its way to film festivals and then hopefully Netflix.

"It's the first time I've ever tried to do something deep," Hagar added. "It makes me look forward to playing every night, and I'm excited for the first time in a long, long time."

Watch "Affirmation" above! Space Between is available now.
