Hot Video Alert: Sam Sparro - Pink Cloud
Sam Sparro's self titled debut album was one of my favorite releases back in 2008 and his canceling his appearance in Boston because of Visa issues was one of my biggest disappointments. His single "Black and Gold," while not a mainstream chart success story in the States, did manage to hit #12 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart when it was released here back in June of 2008. Since then Sparro was featured on releases from Basement Jaxx ("Feelings Gone") and Dutch production duo Mason ("Corrected"), in addition to working on his forthcoming sophomore release. "Pink Cloud" originally premiered on East Village Radio's Accidental Rhythm back in July in an un-mastered format. Then...just last week, Sparro unveiled a music video for the song and explained via Twitter that "Pink Cloud" is NOT a single. Per Sparro himself:
"It is not a single- more of art project. I appreciate ur comments about wanting 2 hear more of my vocals. no fear- the album is full of them."The super-cool, super artsy video was directed by Franc/Fernandez and features Sparro rocking a number of looks, nearly all of which include some amount of face and body paint, masks, headdresses and other tribal-influenced fashion. What's more, Sparro is offering a free download of the song + remixes and an additional track. Looks like this is just what Sam Sparro fans have been looking for to tide us over between now and the new album. Get your free download below and check out the video.
