NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 11, 2014) - Today, Metronomy premiered a brand new video to the single 'Love Letters' on their YouTube channel, directed by Academy Award winner Michel Gondry. PRESS HERE to watch the video.
Gondry became known for his inventive visual style in early music videos for artists such as Bjork, Radiohead, Kylie Minogue, The White Stripes, Beck and Daft Punk, however soon he went on to develop documentaries, screen plays and feature films, of which he gained critical acclaim for Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind and later, The Science of Sleep. His most recent project is a hand-drawn animated documentary on famed linguist Noam Chomsky, entitled 'Is the man who is tall happy?'.
Having sunk comfortably into music video retirement, Metronomy are the sole act able to bring Gondry out and the results are a visual feast, a rare treat for both Metronomy and Gondry fans worldwide.
On Wednesday, February 12th at 12pm EST, Metronomy fans will be able to talk to Joe Mount and Michel Gondry via a very special Google Hangout hosted by Adam Buxton on YouTube. The first Google Hangout of its kind, viewers will, for the first time ever, be able to submit their questions for Joe and Michel in the comments section of the YouTube video using the hashtag #loveletters. The hangout will be streamed live from the Metronomy official YouTube channel here.
Metronomy will embark on a North American tour this May. The tour will support the release of their new album titled Love Letters, which is due out March 11th via Because Music / Elektra Records. Forthcoming Love Letters is Joseph Mount's masterpiece. Not losing any of the glowing warmth and ear worm melodies that makes Metronomy's sound so distinct, Love Letters is more developed, further evolved -- Joe Mount excels in his lyrics and song writing delivering what sounds like a truly classic record. All North American tour dates are below. Presale tickets are on sale TODAY @ 12pm. PRESS HERE for more information. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, February 14th. AMEX customers can purchase tickets starting Wednesday, February 12th.
