Blood Orange - Time Will Tell (music video)
Posted by Lee Goldup on November 17, 2013
Blood Orange released new album 'Cupid Deluxe' last week along with this video for album closing track "Time Will Tell". Hynes explains the tracks origin:
“The song itself was recorded live in a one take that lasted about 15 minutes I ad-libbed the vocals recalling lyrics from songs of mine and a song by Adam Bainbridge (which he was unaware i was going to do). Adam was on the drum machine, Blue May on guitar, Sam Beste on piano, & Tawiah on backing vocals. I then took some of my vocals from towards the end and overlaid it as a backing vocal."
The video directed by Alan Del Ortiz who has Hynes dressed all in white at a white piano, before he stands up to bust out moves per choreography by Juri Onuki. The low budget vid immediately makes you think of early 80's MTV.
