Cate Le Bon reveals new 11-minute short film Crab Day

11 April 2016, 18:37 | Written by Laurence Day

Cate Le Bon has lifted the lid on Crab Day, the 11-minute short film accompany her upcoming album of the same name.

The film was shot on location in Berlin in the winter of 2015, and is directed by Turner Prize nominee Phil Collins.

Cate says of the film: “My desire was not to work with any artist on visuals for Crab Day, but to work with Phil. He creates a landscape that is anarchic and wide-open through careful consideration and exploration. There is no map. It is an empowering isolation that fills me up when I see his work. It's beautiful, strange and inescapably human. To have him take Crab Day and reimagine it as a visual piece is an absolute honour. No stone was left unturned and the friendship that we have fostered over the years was the anchor of the collaboration. He has made a coat that we can both wear."

Crab Day (the album) is out 15 April via Turnstile.
