The Fratellis released a new video today for “Starcrossed Losers” off of their forthcoming fifth studio album, In Your Own Sweet Time, out March 16th from Cooking Vinyl. The new album was produced by Grammy-nominated Tony Hoffer (Beck, M83, Belle & Sebastian).
Directed by Alexander Darby, the video follows two down on their luck Romeo and Juliet-like lovers, whose lives have crossed over and over again through the years. They finally reunite, older and more withered, trying to rekindle the spark of young love. The present-day unfolds backward and flashes back to moments in time throughout their lives.
In a press release director Alexander Darby said, “Filming in reverse was fun but a challenge too with those long takes, we really had to map everything out carefully and on a couple of shots, did way more rehearsals than we did takes!“
You can preorder In Your Own Sweet Time on Limited Edition orange vinyl here.
The Fratellis hit the road in April. They will invade The Belasco here in Los Angeles on May 1st. Buy your tickets here.
