Lloyd Cole Shares Video For "The Over Under"

This summer saw Lloyd Cole release a new album, Guesswork. Today he shares a film created around the LP’s single “The Over Under” (available now). The clip was made byJohn Wood and Paul Harrison. Lloyd has long been a fan of Bristol contemporary artists and the self-styled “Laurel & Hardy of contemporary art.”

A sublime slice of 21st century synth-pop, “The Over Under” sees Lloyd tackle middle-aged angst with his customary wit and style. He notes, “I was very nervous when I approached John and Paul suggesting they might enjoy the song and maybe they might make a film/music video, I was thrilled that they accepted, and I’m ecstatic with the result. It is simply perfect. If I have a regret, it’s that I wasn’t involved with our videos in the ’80s and ’90s. I was always too busy, it seemed, but really that’s no excuse and I have some very mediocre work to my name. I’m really enjoying the challenge these days and I’m truly blessed that great visual artists are happy to work with me. Now, how can I persuade Neil Tennant to be in one with me for ‘Moments and Whatnot’? and who will make it?”
