Twin Shadow’s George Lewis, Jr. stars in the sleek, black and white video for “I’m Ready,” a song off their recently-released major label debut Eclipse. The song itself gives me some strong Phil Collins vibes with the pounding, circuitous drums and thick, lush harmonies on the dramatic chorus. Speaking of drama, the Lance Drake-directed clip plays out like a three-minute-long action movie, packed with raising cars, sniper targets and some intimidating men. Watch the whole thing below.
UPDATE: Representatives of Twin Shadow drummer Andy Bauer have issued a statement about his ongoing recovery. Here’s the statement in full:
Andy Bauer, longtime drummer for Twin Shadow, remains hospitalized two weeks following a multi-vehicle pileup involving Twin Shadow’s tour bus on I-70 near Aurora, Colorado. The tour, in support of Twin Shadow’s recently released album Eclipse, had only recently gotten underway when the accident caused the group to postpone several dates to allow for the Twin Shadow family to recover from their injuries.
Having undergone two surgeries to repair injuries to his spine, Andy’s condition has been upgraded from serious to medically stable and he continues to improve with the help of his medical team at the University of Colorado Hospital lead by Drs. CJ Kleck and Vikas Patel. He has transitioned into the acute rehabilitation program, and there is great optimism that he will make a complete recovery. Andy is hopeful that he can return to touring with Twin Shadow as soon as medically possible.
Knowing how many people are rooting for him will make it easier for Andy to complete his rehabilitation. Andy and his family are grateful for the outpouring of love, support and prayers he has received from the Denver community, his fans, and friends during this painful experience. He will continue to keep in touch regarding his recovery, his plans, and his music via his Facebook page.
