Interpol are releasing their highly anticipated album Marauder and ahead of the LPs release, they’ve also shared the video for new single ‘If You Really Love Nothing’. Directed by Hala Mater and shot in LA, the vid stars Kristen Stewart and Finn Wittrock in a doomed romance. As Paul Banks explains, “Hala is a young director I had the pleasure of meeting a few years ago, and I’ve been a big fan of her short film work since. Her luscious use of colours and lighting, her insightful dialogue and playful direction, for me, are her hallmarks. There’s always humor, drama and atmosphere to spare in her work…Kristen Stewart is the perfect actress for this part. I don’t think there’s anyone that could have better played the role. She nails it, and I love the performance from Finn Wittrock. Another wonderful casting choice – he plays the role of Kristen’s beleaguered companion beautifully.”
To celebrate the album release, Interpol are playing two intimate UK shows, one in Kingston for Banquet Records on 29th August and one at Rough Trade East on 30th August.
Marauder is out 24th August on Matador Records
