Given what we now know about his personal life, it takes a lot of balls for Thurston Moore to release a video for a love song on Valentine’s day. And yet that’s what’s happening. “Heavenmetal” was a song from Chelsea Light Moving, the former Sonic Youth co-leader’s new band, but now it’s being billed as a solo track, and Moore’s got a new video for it. Director Julia Langendorff filmed the video in Paris, and it’s got Moore playing the song in a room full of candles, while a couple of young ladies witchily bond with each other. Watch it below.
Moore’s got a solo album coming out this June on Matador.
