Patrick Wolf unleashes his new single, Vulture tonight, in a video offering that's been deemed to provocative for even late night TV. The new video will be shown as a late night exclusive on MySpace this Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th March, 9pm-4am.
Deemed too provocative for even late night TV, MySpace are promoting the video as an exclusive post watershed in the late night hours, due to its graphic content.
Filmed in black & white, photographic style, it shows an enraptured, semi naked Patrick writhing in a full S&M, bondage outfit. The controversial scenes are intercut with those of Patrick as the leather clad ‘Vulture' and as an unmasked icon. Inspired by experiences Patrick gained and suffered on the American leg of the 2007 ‘Magic Position' tour, the video perfectly depicts these experiences, which Patrick describes as ‘getting involved in some dodgy satanic sex games and exploring the many dark sides of Los Angeles'.
Get ready to get hot under the (dog) collar…
The video was directed by Patrick himself in collaboration with Rory Broadfoot, a groundbreaking Director of Photography who works regularly with legendary Photographer Rankin.
The beautiful leather and bondage wear was provided by the visionary avant garde designers “Fleet Ilya” and the sculptural vulture cape was commissioned especially by Patrick as part of “The Bachelor” wardrobe from acclaimed up and coming designer ”Ada Zanditon”
