Let’s get right to it – the album isn’t released til next Friday, but I’m letting you all know first that you can listen to it RIGHT NOW! on the CBC Music page! More on that below. Once you’re done with that you can watch a brand new video (premiered on Rolling Stone) for the single Lawless and see all the international release tourdates (more below…)
CBC First Play
We’re very grateful to the folks at CBC for offering to give people a chance to hear the new album one week before its official release date. The album will be up online until the day before it’s official release date on August 14th right here!
New Video by Montreal Director Derek Branscombe
A few months back I was absolutely blown away by the immaculate images I saw in a music video. On closer inspection I found out they were the responsibility of Montreal cinematographer Derek Branscombe. Luck was on my side when I reached out to see about working together and it turned out he was free and very excited about a concept he’d developed while listening to the new single Lawless. After months of hard work the video was premiered in July on the website for Rolling Stone Germany. Directed and shot by Branscombe, the video is an exploration of intimacy and relationship cycles through movement and dance. The video was shot in and around Montreal, and features dancers Maxine Segalowitz and Julia Laperrière and was produced by Meryam Joobeur (and production company Achromatic Media).
