Tindersticks “Hey Lucinda”, featuring Lhasa De Sela, from new album “The Waiting Room”
Release date: 22 January 2016
Film by Joe King & Rosie Pedlow
Colourist: Jason R Moffat
Throughout their two-decade career, Tindersticks have become known as masters of restraint and human emotion, led by the sophistication and rich baritone of Stuart Staples. On January 22nd via City Slang, the band will release “The Waiting Room”, their most elaborate and diverse album to date. It’s also an ambitious collaborative film project where each song on the album will be accompanied by a short film. The idea for this was created in conjunction with the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival and its chief Calmin Borel. Calmin’s great knowledge of short film coupled with Tindersticks’ very definite sense of aesthetic were a strong foundation for this concept. Specific filmmakers were approached with a different song from the album, resulting in a varied collection of styles and techniques that are a perfect foil to Staples’ intimate relationship with the songs.
Tindersticks announced this special project with “We are Dreamers!” featuring Jehnny Beth of Savages, one of the album’s gorgeous duets, and its accompanying film by Brazilian director Gabriel Sanna. The band continues to reveal more about this project by presenting the stunning “Hey Lucinda” featuring Lhasa De Sela, a dear lost friend and creative ally of Staples. English directors Rosie Pedlow and Joe King created its accompanying film. Read Staples comments below on how “Hey Lucinda” and it’s short film came to be, and head over to Indiewire for further insight from the directors about the film.
