After years as the man behind the curtain, Emile Haynie is stepping out into the limelight with his first solo album. Except it’s not really a solo album — Haynie has enlisted 13 of the music industry’s best and brightest to bring We Fall to life. Today he’s shared the video for “Falling Apart” which features the unlikely combination of Beach Boys mastermind Brian Wilson and Andrew Wyatt of Miike Snow. Haynie has a knack for pairing up artists in unexpected yet exceptional ways (see: “A Kiss Goodbye,” which brought together Charlotte Gainsbourg, Dev Hynes, and Sampha). In this case Wyatt handles the melody while Wilson adds his signature vocal flourishes on a song that details one darling’s fall from grace. The video is disconcerting; a girl free-falls through an idyllic outdoor fountain and swirls of pastel colors as the scene around her slowly loses clarity. It’s a beautiful nightmare. Watch it below.
