Depois de “Bored in
the USA”, Josh Tillman apresenta-nos mais uma música daquele que irá ser o seu
segundo álbum –
 I Love You, Honeybear – lançado na Europa a 9 de
Fevereiro pela Bella Union e a 10, do mesmo mês, para o resto do
mundo, pela Sub Pop.

O músico publicou na sua página de facebook o vídeo para a
sua mais recente música, deixando-nos alguns relatos das ideias inéditas que o
próprio teve para aquele que poderia vir a ser o vídeo mais viral do ano.

Aqui ficam as suas declarações, juntamente com o vídeo:

«A few months ago, I
had an idea for a video. I was going to rent a wedding chapel, get a dozen
kittens and stage a kitten wedding, over which I would preside and intercut
with performance footage of me lip-syncing the song which you’re hear
ing today, “Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins)”.

Sounds great, right? It may have even gone viral
because kittens. If a video goes viral, than means you’re reaching a wider
audience, and you might even get on a chart. If you get on a chart that means
you’re streaming more records, and the more records you’re streaming the more
money you supposedly have for hiring kitten wranglers.

Aside from the fact that kitten wranglers are
considerably more expensive than you may realize and that said-kitten wranglers
all informed me there was no way we were going to be able get the outfits I had
mocked up onto said-kittens, there was another extenuating factor involved in
the decision to abort this music video concept and ruin the slim likelihood
that I might ever get to see the Huffington Post entertainment headline

That reason is that the song actually means a great
a deal to me.

It’s got the #4 on it because this iteration
Chateau Lobby was the 4th attempt at arranging and producing the song that did
not turn out perversely sentimental. Sentimentality brutalizes emotion. Much
like ironic music videos.

I don’t care if you like the video or not. The
label isn’t crazy about it. Management isn’t crazy about it. I have been
informed I’m basically kissing an MTV Woody award goodbye forever. I made it on
an iPad on my wedding anniversary with the one I love. We ate pancakes.

I love you,
