Tell us about your new video and how it came about?
The video was filmed in the small Polish village of Sycewo and directed by a gifted director named Archon, who has written and directed many films and over 100 music videos. He is amazing with symbolism and the video definitely has that mysterious, dangerous-yet-sophisticated Euro appeal. It features spectacular drone footage of androgynous male models sprinting though the Polish countryside in slow motion. Who doesn't love that? Most of it takes place in an alternate dimension dive bar brimming with voguing misfits on the brink of unmitigated excess. So pretty much an average weeknight, give or take.
Why did you choose “Feel Like Love” as the title of your new album?
It just felt like the right choice, and I didn't over think it. The producer and co-writer of the record (Christopher Smart) and I had each separately thought that should be the title and shared it with the other. Instant validation.
In a few words, describe your connection with David Lynch.
Pure, enlivening, enduring, expansive.
We hear that you will be singing The Cure songs for a new project by Marc Colin from Nouvelle Vague. What can you tell us about this?
I'm recording the album right now in Paris. The sessions with Marc are going beautifully. It's a deep dive into their catalogue and the way things are turning out is unexpected and quite fulfilling. I think it's going to be pretty fantastic.
