With all the news of Jarvis writing songs to soundtrack other people’s motion picture projects — some for the Forgetting Sarah Marshall sequel, one for Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox — it’s nice to have him soundtrack one of his own, here in this Stéphanie Di Guisto-directed clip for the title track from his Further Complications LP. It’s a Cockerlover’s delight, nothing but Cocker, bending over, being folded up and pushed around, mugging for the embed player. Watch:
Further Complications is out. Also, Jarvis is doing another one of those multiple-day installation things where he hosts, soundtracks yoga classes, and plays a concert, all at one space (previously at Paris’s Galerie Chappe, this time at the Village Underground in London) and simulcast on his website. Mark your calendar for 11/9-11/11, Cocker heads.
