Hot Video Alert: Frankmusik featuring Colette Carr - No I.D.
Music Is My King Size Bed favorite, Frankmusik, premiered the video for his latest single yesterday on the AOL Music Blog. An infectious summery pop jam, "No I.D." was released on iTunes September 6th and is the third official single lifted off Vincent Frank's sophomore album, Do It In The AM due out later this month via Island Records/Cherrytree/Interscope Records. Featuring fellow Cherrytree Records newbie Colette Carr, "No I.D." is the perfect pop song to close out the summer. Unlike previous singles, "The Fear Inside" and "Do It In The AM," "No I.D." strays away from his familiar electropop sounds, instead delivering a sassy mid-tempo pop jam with hints of reggae. Carr absolutely shines in this duet, showcasing more of her vocal ability that we really didn't get to see on her equally hot debut single (produced by Frankmusik) "(We Do It) Primo." While I do love the club beats Frankmusik usually brings to the table, I have to admit that I kind of like seeing this softer, more playful side.
The second track off of the album, "No I.D." was co-written by Frank, Carr, Nick Dresti and Martin "Cherry Cherry Boom Boom" Kierszenbaum, and will be featured on both Do It In The AM as well as on Carr's forthcoming debut album. According to Carr, "There are always insane creative vibes when we are in the studio together, we never know what we will come up with, and we feed off the energy of the unknown." Frank himself echoed that very same sentiment, saying, “It was amazing working with Colette and transforming the original rap style into a sung song." It's nice to see such mutual admiration between two equally talented artists. The addition of Frankmusik and Colette Carr to the already impressive Cherrytree roster just goes to show how focused on creating quality music Cherrytree Records really is.
The Hyperballad-directed video pays tribute to Grease, featuring Frankmusik in the Danny Zuko role and a STUNNING Colette Carr playing the part of Sandy Olsson. Look out for a cameo from fellow up & coming popstar Simon Curtis, dancing his cute little ass off in a scene featuring Frank and the boys. While I fail to see a parallel between the video and the lyrics, I just don't give a s@*t because the song is just so much damn fun! Frankmusik is set to release Do It In The AM on September 26th in the UK and on September 27th here in the States (pre-order it HERE). In addition to releasing his own album, Frank is currently on tour with the legendary electropop group Erasure, whose album he also worked on.
