"Supernova" is the very first music video LaMontagne has made, a landmark he spoke to the Huffington Post about proudly.
"I was hooked immediately," the singer says of artist and video producer Lucy Dyson. "I was instantly taken with her Terry Gilliam-esque use of layered, ragged cut-out images. To me that was the anchor. A familiar place for my imagination to leap from."
The music video is a colorful affair in Dyson's signature style. "It feels like you're on a roller coaster in some weird circus of the psychedelic burlesque," LaMontagne boasts. "And yet, underneath all that strange and beautiful imagery there's this sense that she is truly emotionally invested in the storytelling."
"To me, it's like she can see within a song some hidden fourth dimension," the musician continues. "A dimension that you didn't even know existed until she pulls aside the curtain and invites you in."
LaMontagne's fifth album, Supernova, will be released on May 6.
