Hot Video Alert: Darin - Lovekiller
Remember a couple of months ago when I posted about Swedish pop star Darin? No? Well here's a refresher. The 23 year old singer/songwriter first rose to fame in his native country back in 2004 when he appeared on the first season of Idol - Sweden's version of American Idol.
Back in August, Darin released Lovekiller, his 5th studio album, his 4th #1 record and his first album with Universal Music. The album's title track and 4th single peaked at #6 on the Swedish Chart and up until now has gone without a music video. Well folks...the wait was worth it. The video for "Lovekiller" has finally premiered and it's epic. The video starts out with a crime scene. Darin is lying dead in a park, surrounded by police cars, police and crime scene investigators. Darin opens his eyes and starts singing. Amazing! And it just gets better. The video really plays like a movie.
Unlike Diana Vickers' "The Boy Who Murdered Love," Darin's "Lovekiller" takes this analogy to a much darker, bloodier place. No cartoon arrows through hearts in this video, just plenty of blood and gore. According to Pop In Stereo, the video for "Lovekiller" is Darin's priciest video to date. Perhaps THAT'S why it's the first single off of the album to get a music video? Also worth a look, here are some some cool photos taken during the video's shoot this past August. Also worth a listen...this dance remix by Steffwell. "Lovekiller" was written and produced by Darin and Tony Nilsson. Check out the video below. Just in time for Halloween!
