CR exclusive: Fever Ray’s Stranger Than Kindness video

Fever Ray’s eponymous debut album has just been re-released as a double disc “deluxe” pack which contains brand new material including this video for the band’s cover of Nick Cave and Anita Lane’s Stranger Than Kindness – directed by Andreas Nilsson

Despite only releasing its eponymously titled debut album a few months ago in March this year, Swedish act Fever Ray has just re-released the album in a new deluxe edition…  

The “deluxe” double-disc version of the Fever Ray album is still adorned with the wonderful artwork by Martin Ander but – as the sticker on it reveals – comes with two bonus tracks on the CD: covers of Vashti Bunyan’s Here Before and Nick Cave and Anita Lane’s Stranger Than Kindness – both of which will sound familiar to fans that attended live gigs by the band as the songs were performed live during its recent tour. The second disc in the package is a DVD containing the videos created for the four singles released from the album to date – plus this brand new video for the Stranger Than Kindness cover, directed by Andreas Nilsson – which, for now, is available to view exclusively online here on CR blog:



Whilst we’ve seen many of the effects used in this video many times before, the film draws on various elements of the Fever Ray’s stage set, lighting and costumes used in the recent tour, pulling them together to make a dark, slightly otherworldly film featuring some pretty bizarre looking characters.
