Hot Video Alert: Eliza Doolittle - Mr. Medicine
Before British singer/songwriter Eliza Doolittle releases her debut U.S. album on March 22nd, she'll be releasing her fourth UK single, "Mr. Medicine" on March 20th. The easy breezy song is easily one of the standout tracks on Eliza's debut and the super cute video only makes it more enjoyable. The concept of the video is fairly simple, showing Doolittle leaving a bar, followed by a cast of truly bizarre characters including some furry monsters, a bear, the Gingerbread Man and a few others. Doolittle, for the most part seems un-phased by her little furry fan club, casting the occasional backwards glance and rolling her eyes.
"Mr. Medicine" is the fifth single, following the re-release of Doolittle's debut single, "Skinny Genes." The song was co-written by Eliza, John Beck and Steven Chrisanthou, who also produced the track. Taken from Doolittle's self-titled debut album which went on to peak at #3 on the UK Albums Chart, "Mr. Medicine" is due out on Parlophone March 20th. It's tough to say how well the single will do in the UK as Doolittle's singles have charted all over the place. Doolittle's most successful single, "Pack Up" was a Top 5 Hit while follow up single "Rollerblades" nearly missed the Top 60. Her December re-release of "Skinny Genes" saw Doolittle return to the Top Ten of the UK Singles Chart, peaking at #8. Eliza is set to dazzle American audiences with her sweet vocal stylings later this month when she releases her album on Capitol Records, March 22nd. In addition, Doolittle will be supporting her release with 2 major festival dates including 2 showcases at this years' SXSW (March 15th - March 20) followed by an appearence at Coachella on April 17th. Hopefully this will be followed by a more extensive U.S. tour? A boy can only hope. Download Doolittle's EP on iTunes HERE and check out the "Mr. Medicine" video below.
