Art d’Ecco shares video for shimmering new single ‘Midlife Crisis’

Art-rocker Art d’Ecco has shared a video for his new single, “Midlife Crisis.”

The track comes from Art d’Ecco’s forthcoming album, After The Head Rush, out June 24th via Paper Bag Records. Today’s preview is a shimmering, synth-driven anthem that’s sure to get you dancing along to the track. The accompanying fun-loving clip for “Midlife Crisis” follows d’Ecco beneath a spotlight as he sings along to the track in a dress shirt and tie.

“Me at 37/38 years old. I’m so pathetic I can’t even start my midlife crisis,” Art d’Ecco explains. “It is so absolutely pathetic, it makes me laugh.”

Watch the video for “Midlife Crisis” below.

Art d’Ecco produced the album himself, with mixing from Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, The Unicorns). The record follows Art d’Ecco’s last album, In Standard Definition, but now he’s ready to channel a new approach.

“Maximalism! I wanted to produce a big, bright, sparkly album,” d’Ecco explains of After the Head Rush. “Along the lines of something you hear in a Tears For Fears or Peter Gabriel record, or something Bob Clearmountain would have mixed in the ’80s.”

In addition to “Midlife Crisis,” After The Head Rush features previously released singles “Only Ones” and “Palm Slave.”
