New Fever Ray Video: “Stranger Than Kindness”

Fever Ray

You probably know by now that Fever Ray, solo project of The Knife‘s Karin Dreijer Andersson, has been the source for some of the best music videos this year. The latest, again directed by frequent collaborator Andreas Nilsson, is for her characteristically frightening cover of “Stranger Than Kindness” by Nick Cave. Eerie lights, mysterious shamans, and dark rituals abound, this video actually reflects much of the stage and costume design from her live performances.

“Stranger Than Kindness”, as well as Fever Ray’s take on Vashti Bunyan’s “Here Before”, a bonus disc that collects a complete live performance, and a DVD of music videos, will all be available on the deluxe edition of Fever Ray’s self-titled debut, due out November 24th on Mute Records. [via]
