Indie pop princess Sky Ferreira has teamed up with Grant Singer once again for the fourth video from GHOST EP – Lost In My Bedroom. With Everything Is Embarrassing nailing every “Best Song of 2012” list that actually matters – 2013 had better be the year of the Ferreira (and Britney, Gaga, Beyonce, Azealia and the rest of pop). In all seriousness, if anyone deserves it, it is Sky. Her debut studio album, I’m Not Alright is set to drop in Q3 of next year and is produced by Ariel Rechtshaid, Jon Brion and Blake Mills.
The official announcement is finally here. Monarchy has unveiled the first promotional image for their new single, Disintegration featuring their muse and collaborator Dita Von Teese.
The story between Dita and Monarchy is pretty beautiful, which is why it makes this feel really authentic, as opposed to a random pop culture collaboration…and it all started with a Tweet. After seeing Monarchy perform at Coachella in 2011 Dita started Tweeting about them. They began emailing. Monarchy was invited to DJ at one of her private events and it went from there…
The video (set for release in January) is shot by Roy Raz and features Dita extensively as the classic 1950’s housewife escaping the monotony of her marriage through sexual fantasy. The artwork for the collaboration (featured below) is taken by Ali Mahdavi (another one of Dita’s long time collaborators – who we shot the Wonderbra campaign with).
UPDATE: Here is the Mighty Mouse remix – released as a digital teaser for the track. Dita’s vocals are beyond incredible. I’ve heard the final edit of the track and you will be blown away, but cannot share it until the official release. Stay tuned – as the video is next level.
Probably the most important/anticipated (bar anything that Lana Del Rey has released) music video of 2012 has arrived. Directed by Ben Mor, here’s the clip for Scream & Shout by will.i.am and Britney (…bitch). The song itself is a grower. Britney’s British accent a.k.a. #Britishney (note the somewhat iconic gas station scenario from 2007) and the Gimme More sample of “Britney Bitch” are FREE OF ALL FLAWS.
The video is amazing. Britney channels a Stronger meets Oops! meets 3 cyber glamazon goddess, and GIFs from this video will be taking over your tumblr feed for YEARS to come.
Britney wears The Blonds and accessories by M by Maggnolia. will.i.am wears custom pieces by Asher Levine, UNCONDITIONAL, Ashton Michael, JOYRICH, LaureLuxe and caps by ADEEN. The duo was styled by Enrique Melendez.
Future-pop princess Charli XCX just unveiled the video for Cloud Aura (ft. Brooke Candy) the lead track from her Super Ultra mixtape (which can be downloaded for free here). The clip, which includes pop culture cameos including Britney Spears, Lauren Conrad, Honey Boo Boo, Zooey Deschanel, Grace Jones and more is directed and cut by Ryan Andrews with Brooke Candy footage via Matthew Bowman
Brooke Candy is, once again, totally incredible – if you are unfamiliar with her genius – click here. The track is produced by J£ZUS MILLION.
Dripping with over the top Illuminati symbolism comes the video “Die Young’ for the debut single from Ke$ha’s second album Warrior – out November 30. The video was directed by Darren Craig for The Uprising Creative and features Ke$ha looking her best yet, loaded with desecration, gang bangs, oh and The Eye of Providence stamped on her ass.
In case you had missed it (unlikely) here is the music video for the incredible Sia-penned “Diamonds” – the first single from Rihanna’s 7th studio album, ‘Unapologetic’. The apocalyptic and symbolic mini-movie is directed by Anthony Mandler (Disturbia, Only Girl In the World).
‘Unapologetic’ will be available on iTunes on November 19, full track listing under the cut.
In a completely unexpected turn of events, New Zealand born British singer-songwriter has released the best directed male solo artist video of 2012. After a six year hiatus (which I assume involved some deep introspective creative thinking), here is his self-directed video for Secret Fear. Super dark, super tumblr-worthy and totally KARLISMYUNKLE approved. The model featured is Teisha Wheaton.
The third and most beautifully directed video from Sky Ferreira’s latest EP ‘GHOST’ has arrived. From the creative vision of Grant Singer comes the clip for Sad Dream, telling the somewhat enchanting (yet dark) story of Sky and an older gentleman that appears to be her father.
Working with producers including Rymez (Wiley – Heatwave), Xenomania (The Saturdays), TMS (Professor Green; Little Mix, Emeli Sandé) and Andy Chatterley (Kylie, Diana Vickers), here is the video for the UK’s latest pop vixen (I know, that sounds cliché, but seriously) Jenn D’s debut single ‘Lose It’. Living for the bassline and her Americana Carmen Electra circa 1995 vibes. The video was directed by Rock Jacobs and features designs by British fashion designer and Fashion Fringe finalist Nabil Nayal.
Clearly taking huge levels of inspiration from Yayoi Kusama for Louis Vuitton (which is a GOOD thing), here is the Colin Tilley directed video for Nicki Minaj’s first single from the Roman Reloaded: Pink Friday re-release (The Re-Up) out on November 19.
The track, The Boys, features Cassie – and both artists look incredible in the video – taking the attention away from the somewhat questionable album artwork.
