Shortly before yesterday’s GRAMMY hoopla kicked off, Lincoln (yes, the car company) released a video of Beck covering David Bowie’s “Sound and Vision”with a 167-piece orchestra.

Shot in a stunning 360-degree style, the nine-minute performance footage was directed by Chris Milk, who’s worked with U2, Kanye West and more. Watch below.

The 167 members of Beck’s backing band include soul revival act the Dap-Kings, members of the USC marching band, multiple choirs, a Peruvian charango group, choirs, a gamelan ensemble, nine guitarists, a saw player and many, many more, all conducted by Beck’s father, David Campbell.
