Arcade Fire present ‘Money + Love’, a film by David Wilson
Everything Now is proud to present Money + Love, a double video directed by David Wilson, written by David Wilson and Arcade Fire, and starring Arcade Fire and Toni Collette.
Money + Love opens in the aftermath of Arcade Fire’s 360-degree deal with global media and e-commerce platform Everything Now, and features a narrative that unfolds over the course of full performances of ‘Put Your Money on Me’ and ‘We Don’t Deserve Love’ from the GRAMMY-nominated global #1 album Everything Now (Sony).
Win Butler said of the two-song short film, “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”.
Director/co-writer David Wilson added, “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.”
Toni Collette said of her role, “Arcade Fire is one of my all time favorite bands. I was blown away when they asked me to be part of their video. 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. I mean, who gets to do that? I am so lucky!”
Having closed out 2017 with a triumphant run through Latin America, Arcade Fire will return to Europe next month when the Infinite Content Tour kicks off in Dublin on 6th April, before a run of sold out shows across the UK.
