New Music of The Day – XXVII : Black Flag – Du Blonde

DuBlonde_AliceBaxleylores.161225There was no better statement of intent to Du Blonde’s new sound and direction than the snarling first single ‘Black Flag’. Now Beth Jeans Houghton is ready to reveal the accompanying video filmed out at Joshua Tree in the Mojave desert, with help from her mother Christine Jeans who was behind the camera.

“We filmed the footage in 40 degree heat while we played Beyonce out of the car stereo. A lot of the record is written about situations and people in Los Angeles so it made sense to incorporate the scenery in which a lot of those stories played out.” reveals Houghton, who edited and directed the video herself.

‘Black Flag’, like much of the forthcoming album Welcome Back To Milk, was produced by Bad Seed and Grinderman member Jim Sclavunos. The album is released on 18 May on Mute, followed by a UK tour in June. Welcome Back To Milk will be available on vinyl, CD, download and cassette, alongside special pre-order packages (go to http://po.st/DuBlondeStore for the full list) which include signed copies, various different artworks and Beth will even design you a tattoo for you, if you want!
