Video: Cate Le Bon releases short film to go with Crab Day album

Crab DayWith her new album Crab Day recently released, singer songwriter Cate Le Bon has released a short feature film of the same name.

Crab Day (the film) is an enticingly strange experience. There's no dialogue or lyrics. Instead, the film draws inspiration and elements from the album to create a visual montage. Directed by award winning visual artist and Turner Prize nominee Phil Collins, the surreal nature brings to mind an even more warped Lewis Carroll.

Le Bon says of the project: "My desire was not to work with any artist on visuals for Crab Day, but to work with Phil. He creates a landscape that is anarchic and wide-open through careful consideration and exploration. There is no map. It is an empowering isolation that fills me up when I see his work. It's beautiful, strange and inescapably human.

To have him take Crab Day and reimagine it as a visual piece is an absolute honour. No stone was left unturned and the friendship that we have fostered over the years was the anchor of the collaboration. He has made a coat that we can both wear."

Crab Day (the album) is out now on Turnstile Records. See tour dates below:
