ARTISTdirect has partnered with the lovely and talented Lili Haydn to premiere her video for "My My Cross the Line" from LiliLand, out now.
"'My My Cross the Line’' was written right after I evacuated my house, and was just starting to feel like I was getting my life back after losing everything in a freak chemical accident," Haydn told us. "I felt free, finally having fun making music in the studio again, staying up all night grooving and hypnotizing myself with a blend of circus chimes and funky bass."
She continued, "I think of it like if Tom Waits were in a Tim Burton movie about a violin playing jungle girl. Speaking of jungle girl, I was raised with almost no pop culture, and didn't realize when I wrote this song that the chorus was almost the exact same melody as David Essex's 'Rock On.' By the time I was alerted to this fact, the song was too far along to change, so I reached out to Essex to split the song!"
The video was directed by Henry Barrial and shot completely using the 8mm app on an iPhone 5 in Venice, California where Lili Haydn lives.
With all that in mind, enjoy the video!
