Mini Mansions recruit Alison Mosshart for their new song ‘Hey Lover’
Mini Mansions has teamed up with The Kills singer Alison Mosshart and delivered a lo-fi video to accompany it.
Having released their previous single ‘Gummy Bear’ earlier this year, Mini Mansions have followed it up with ‘Hey Lover’ as both songs look set to be included in their forthcoming new album Guy Walks Into A Bar….
“I love doing collaborations with bands I love, getting to dive in and explore another artist’s work. When Mikey sent me ‘Hey Lover’ and asked if I wanted to sing on it, I was stoked,” Mosshart said in a statement. “From first listen I wanted to hear it again and again. What I love about this song is that I’ve had this realistic lyrical conversation many times. We’ve all had this conversation many times. But it’s never sounded so beautiful. Usually it’s more of a gutter punk song. A lot of screaming and breaking things. Mini Mansions make foul play sound elegant.”
She added: “What a modern/old school music video, you know? My role in this video took approximately an hour (modern), 2 cigarettes and half a bottle of wine (old school). I am quite pleased with the results.”
