PATRICK WATSON SHARES NEW VIDEO FOR PLACES YOU WILL GO
Patrick Watson | 05/05/15
With Love Songs For Robots being released next week, Patrick Watson has shared the new video for ‘Places You Will Go’ and you can watch it below. The video was directed by Oscar-nominated team Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski and they explain how the thoughts behind the video.
“The video was inspired by watching the band play small shows leading up to the release…The clip is shot in a small Sequoia cabin in Northern Quebec in a single take, from a single perspective. The reward of this very simple concept is a lively, energetic and intimate portrait of Patrick and the band.”
Love Songs For Robots will be released on May 11th and the new music was recorded at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles and Pierre Marchand Studio in Montreal. Of the record, some of which was debuted at private concerts in small loft spaces, Watson explains:
“I wanted to make a science fiction R’n’ B meets Vangelis erotica with a zest of folk kind of record.” It was only halfway through writing the record when the artist found himself having, by his own submission, “a bad year” did more personal themes begin to creep in.
“I started thinking about how emotional reactions were more mechanical than we think and the only thing left between us and artificial intelligence is the act of inspiration. Just food for thought.”
To celebrate the release, Watson will embark on a worldwide tour that includes a sold out show at London’s Bush Hall on May 11th. More details below.
