The collaborative project will also include a film project in which every track will be accompanied by a short film. In conjunction with Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival and it’s chief, Calmin Borel, the adventurous project will see the group in a whole new light.
Starting out with the unveiling of ‘Hey Lucinda’ and it’s film, Tindersticks are giving fans a glimpse of what’s to come. Directed by Rosie Pedlow and Joe King, the film shows various individuals entering a selection of venues with a time-lapse style.
Staples has commented on ‘Hey Lucinda’ saying it was a “ten-year struggle” to finalise the track. Staples had visited Lhasa de Sela in Montreal who had helped him with the writing and recording process, however, after her unfortunate passing in 2010, he felt it was best to put it aside. Staples has “only recently been able to listen to her sing again” and is now ready for the world to hear it too.
The narrative track is now available for viewing on YouTube and is sure to be followed with others from The Waiting Room before the 2016 release through Inertia.
