A couple of weeks back, Justin Timberlake dropped the official video for his latest single ‘Tunnel Vision’. It was quite heavy on the nudity. So much so that YouTube banned it.
Now while the clip for Goldfrapp’s new tune ‘Drew’ isn’t nearly as full on in the nudity department (it’s rather tastefully done in a Pet Shop Boys ‘Being Boring’ black and white kinda way), there’s still some bare bum action here, which is possibly why Ms Alison and co have decided to upload it to Vimeo as well… just in case the team at YouTube finds it offensive in any way shape or form. So still possibly not quite safe for work, but nowhere near as in your face as JT’s clip.
Musically, it’s back towards the more ‘Seventh Tree’ stripped back wistful style than ‘Supernature’s beats-filled disco pop – and Alison has never looked – our sounded – better.
Goldfrapp’s new album ‘Tales Of Us’ will be released in Australia on Friday September 06.
