Todd Terje released his teriffic debut, It's Album Time!, this week. (Stream it at Rdio.) While he's best known for '80s-inspired arpeggiated workouts like "Inspector Norse" and "Delorean Dynamite" the album kicks off with new single "Leisure Suit Preben" which owes more to Ennio Morricone's exotica side than to Jan Hammer. It may also owe a little to a classic video game.

The single's accompanying video, directed by Espen Friberg & Emil Høgset, follows Preben himself (played by Edvard Tidemann) on a sleazy drunken night in Oslo. Like the song itself, it takes an interesting turn halfway through. Watch it below.
