Warpaint tease collaboration with director Chris Cunningham, plus longer version of 'Love Is To Die'
The LA band play four shows in the UK this month
The Los Angeles band previewed 30 seconds of new song 'Love Is To Die' as part of a new Calvin Klein advertisement last week. The track featured in their set at End Of The Road festival on August 31.
The group tweeted the video yesterday (October 7), with a message saying "we can't wait to share our new music with you." The YouTube post linked to in the tweet reveals that British director Chris Cunningham, known for his work with Aphex Twin and Madonna, has been working with the group for two years as they record the follow-up to 2010's 'The Fool'.
It reads: "In addition to capturing imagery [Cunningham] also reimagined the songs themselves, creating beautiful and exciting alternate versions to soundtrack the visuals. The resulting documentary is something that only could have come from this unique meld of talents. The above teaser gives a little glimpse of what's in store."
