British singer Chelou is releasing his new album, Real, on November 20th. Just a few days before this happens, he presents Wayward, the latest single of the forthcoming LP, whose video is illustrated by Madrid-based Ricardo Cavolo and animated by Berlin-based Cheng-Hsu Chung. A surrealist and soulful yet intimate journey through one’s subconscious.
“Ricardo and Cheng really capture the emotion of the song drawing on all the classic abstractness of our early videos, and it fits so perfectly with our continuous mission of using animation to direct the music into new worlds,” says Chelou. The collaboration sees three different talents – singer and musician, illustrator, and director/animator –, each with his own way of expressing themselves, come together for a sensitive, introspective audio-visual piece.
