Feist Combines the Present and Past With Video for ‘Bittersweet Melodies’
Indie darling Feist has unveiled the music video for her latest single, ‘Bittersweet Melodies.’ The song is taken from her latest album ‘Metals,’ which was released last October.
As tweeted by Feist, Rolling Stone premiered the video this morning (April 9) which you can watch below. It features the work of Brazilian photographer Irina Werning, who takes old photos and recreates them using the subjects as they are now. Some of the people in ‘Bittersweet Melodies’ look like they have barely aged a day.
“I love old photos, but I love even more to recreate them,” Werning says. “When I fall in love with a picture I don’t stop until I have them in front of me dressed like this doing that thing they were doing. I’m always amazed that they do it.”
Feist enjoyed a winning night at the 2012 Juno Awards earlier this month. The Canadian singer claimed Artist of the Year and snagged an additional two trophies at the dinner gala the night before.
Feist will resume touring this week, starting with back-to-back weekend sets at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, CA on April 14. You can check out her whole itinerary here to see if she’s coming to a concert venue near you.
