Watch the video for Lloyd Cole’s new single The Idiot
By Classic Pop | August 25, 2023
Lloyd Cole has shared a video to accompany his new single The Idiot, the second single from his new album On Pain via earMUSIC.
The film is another collaboration between Lloyd Cole and Canadian filmmaker Doug Arrowsmith from Feltfilm, (who lensed Lloyd’s video for his previous single Warm By The Fire).
The Idiot was filmed at the legendary Horseshoe Bar in Toronto, and stars dancers Kaelin Isserlin (as ‘David’) and Ryan Kostyniuk (as ‘Jim’). It is choreographed by dance artist Nyda Kwasowsky from the National Ballet School of Canada.
On 23rd June 2023 Lloyd Cole released his 12th album as a solo artist. Entitled On Pain, it features eight new Lloyd Cole songs, four of which are co-written by Commotions founding members Blair Cowan and Neil Clark, who also perform on the record.
The album was produced by Chris Merrick Hughes and was recorded in Lloyd’s attic studio The Establishment in Massachusetts.
