A posthumous video for The Child Of Lov’s track ‘One Day’ featuring Damon Albarn has been released.
The 26-year-old artist Martijn William Zimri Teerlinck, also known as Cole Williams, passed away on December 10, 2013 following complications after surgery. He released his debut, self-titled album last year which featured the song ‘One Day’. A video for the track was commissioned from director Christine Yuan “just prior to his passing”, says a press release. This video has now been released. Click above to watch the promo.
“Yuan had not met him nor did she know about his illness when she made the video but she clued in on the song’s lyrics to find inspiration – ‘Hold me until the morning. Hold me until the morning. One day baby I got to die and I lie down’,” adds the release of the unsettling video.
As well as Damon Albarn, The Child Of Lov worked with Doom on his self-titled debut album, which was released in June 2013 via Domino Records’ sister label Double Six. He was the recipient of NME’s Philip Hall Radar Award at the 2013 NME Awards.
