Here is the video for the new single Idlewild. The song is a duet with Josephine Oniyama and is my personal favorite on the record. We shot it on the coldest night of the year in Berlin. It was 12 below freezing and snowing. Inspired by seeing It’s a Wonderful Life a few days earlier for the hundredth time, and gambling on the snowy weather, I had us dress in 1940’s clothes. The snow fell evenly for the whole shoot and then, like a spell had been broken, stopped when we wrapped at 1am.
Hope you like it! Fran, Dougie, Andy & Neil X
