Beware: Ned Collette will seduce you with his steely gaze, white lounge suit and Spanish guitar.
Directed by Berlin-based filmmakers Lucy Dyson and Joseph Jensen, the video for ‘Long You Lie’ sees the Melbourne singer face-off with another suitor (played by Sascha Gersak) for the attentions of Mirjam Smejkal, a well-known stage actor in her native Germany (she even has her own IMDB page).
The clip is slick, dramatic and seemingly pokes fun at the high budget, high concept pop market, which is fitting really, because it’s about as close to a Euro dance single as Collette will ever come.
‘Long You Lie’ is the first single from Collette’s forthcoming second album 2, which refers to the fact it’s mostly a collaboration with Wirewalker’s Joe Talia, who worked on the record with Collette in Berlin and later Melbourne. It’ll be out May 11 through Dot Dash/Remote Control. Tour dates here.
