If the header of this article has you scratching your head and asking, “wait, what?”, then read on.
As revealed in our recent INTERVIEW, the collaboration between Australian soul queen Marcia Hines and actor Russell Crowe came about primarily because of a previous collaboration.
“I’d already worked with Russell on his album ‘My Hand, My Heart’ and I sang a song with him called ‘Testify’,” Marcia says of ‘Remedy’. “So I got in touch with him and said that I had a song I’d love him to record with me. He said, ‘okay send it to me and I’ll tell you what I think’ and I sent it to him and he said ‘yes’.” The rest, as they say, is history.
But it’s not just vocals Russell’s contributed to this release. The award-winning star has also directed and starred in the official video (below).
It’s a pretty ambitious piece too, with Marcia playing a surgeon’s assistant who’s clearly smitten for Mister Surgeon (played by Crowe). Breaking out of the surgery, Marcia and her co-horts take to the stage to perform a high-energy, ’60s-esque routine. Marcia smashes it.
