Matt Sweeney and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy first worked together way back in 2005 on Superwolf.

A new single has been released from Matt Sweeney and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s second collaborative album Superwolves ahead of its digital release on April 30th.

The video for My Blue Suit has been directed by Geoff McFetridge, and is the taster of an LP which will also get a physical release on June 18th.

“I started this video by painting,” McFetridge explains. “The work I created, in response to the song, was large scale figures I could use in scenes filmed on camera.”

“All the images in the film are done in camera, there are no digital effects. The graphic sequences were done with paintings wrapped around a garbage can placed on a Techniques 1200 turntable. The tools used to create the effects were knives, glue, paint and tape.”

“The pieces created for the film are nearly life size portraits done with acrylic on paper. These works, the film and the animated elements will be shown in the project space of Cooper Cole Gallery in Toronto, opening May 1st.”
