Alela Diane to support Fleet Foxes in the US & New Video


Alela Diane will be supporting her friends Fleet Foxes’ US tour in July. She is currently in the midst of her own headlining tour.

Yesterday the album’s first video for the single ‘Desire’ premiered worldwide on Spinner.Watch it below.

The song was written by Alela and her husband Tom Bevitori who features in the video. “The song is about a woman I know who shall remain anonymous … It’s not about me,” she told Spinner. “We shot the video in the Soho area of London. The close-up shots were filmed on a rooftop three roofs down from where Elton John allegedly wrote ‘Your Song’.” The video was directed by Andy Dunn and filmed in London’s Soho during the band’s recent European tour.

Earlier this year Alela released her third album ‘Alela Diane & Wild Divine’ which was penned on the road whilst touring in 2009 and produced by Scott Litt (Nirvana, REM, The Replacements) who ceased his seven-year dormancy to invite the group to his home studio in Venice, CA and make the album.
