Metronomy have unveiled the video for their new single ‘Love Letters’.
The promo has been directed by Michel Gondry, and can be viewed above. Gondry has previously worked with artists such as Daft Punk, The White Stripes, Radiohead and Beck. The song is taken from the band’s new album of the same name, which is set for release on March 10. A behind the scenes picture of the band working with Gondry is below.
Behind The Scenes At Metronomy’s Michel Gondry-Directed Video Shoot
Speaking to NME about working with Gondry, Joe Mount of the band commented: “When I first met him he obviously didn’t know who we were, but with every stage he’s been getting more excited. All the music videos that I remembered from growing up, from Daft Punk and The Chemical Brothers, were by people like him, and I never really imagined it would happen… to do a video with him is amazing, everything I wanted.”
Metronomy recently unveiled the album at an intimate show in Brighton. The band played almost all of their fourth LP in public for the very first time at The Old Market venue on January 29. The show was Metronomy’s first since finishing up the 2012 festival season in Berlin in September of that year.
