"The Heinrich Maneuver" is a song by American rock band Interpol. It was released as the lead single from their third studio album, Our Love to Admire (2007), on May 7, 2007. The cover features a Serval cat. The song's title is a play on the Heimlich Maneuver[citation needed] and an allusion to the novel White Noise by Don DeLillo.[1]

Popular music magazine Billboard has described the song as "a peppy kiss-off to an ex-love now residing on the opposite coast."[2]


The single was released to radio on May 7, 2007.[3] Q101/WKQX Chicago was the first radio station to play "The Heinrich Maneuver", doing so on 27 April 2007 at 6:12pm CDT. The song was played by Steve Lamacq of BBC Radio 1 for the first time on British radio on 7 May 2007.[4] "The Heinrich Maneuver" was also played regularly throughout the band's recent tour of Canada, along with the new songs "Pioneer to the Falls" and "Mammoth". Bootleg recordings from that tour have been widely circulated on music forums and P2P networks. The single was released as a 2-track CD single as well as two separate 7" vinyl singles in the UK on July 2.[5] The song was used in an episode of MTV's The Hills and a 2012 AT&T commercial.[6]

Music video

The video for "The Heinrich Maneuver" was released on June 26, 2007. It is a single take of the main character, a woman in a white dress, shown in extreme slow motion applying lipstick and walking towards her demise, being hit by a bus. This overlays three other characters whose reactions to the event unfold in a mixture of speed altered motion, initially proceeding forward and then reversing. A man taking out his cellphone, a vogue lady screaming, and a waiter running to the scene. The woman featured unwittingly walks in front of a moving bus whose impact is cut short by the screen turning black as the song's outro is cut short.
