‘Money + Love’ a double video directed by David Wilson, written by David Wilson and Arcade Fire, and starring Arcade Fire and fabulous Academy Award-nominated Australian actress, Toni Collette.
‘Money + Love’ will be released March 15.
The film follows a 360-degree deal with a media conglomerate, layered over the narrative to unfold in the course of two song performances ‘Put Your Money On Me’ and ‘We Don’t Deserve Love’
The band’s frontman, Win Butler commented: “The concept of a double video really appealed to us, we’d always loved songs being put together as A and B sides… and these songs seemed perfect together. David has been a great collaborator for us since Reflektor and we were finally able to work with Toni whom we’d been wanting to work with for some time”.
“The ambition and scale of the piece was huge from the outset. I adore working with Arcade Fire – reacting to their vision and scale is a beautiful thing to creatively respond to. The belief and trust in me from the band made this one of the best experiences of my career. It’s an as-close-to-perfect collaboration that I can think of with me and Win hitting emails backwards and forwards continually over the formation of the script. The connection, communication and enthusiasm from the band on the multiple shoot days led to an extremely tight bond. I’m super excited for this to be out in the world,” director/co-writer David Wilson added.
Toni Collette said of her role, “It was a total pleasure acting with them and an even greater pleasure getting to know them. They continue to inspire and I continue to admire.”
Arcade Fire will return to the U.S. for: Summerfest’s July 8closer, Sloss Music & Arts Festival in Birmingham AL, and Forecastle in Louisville KY.
