The film stars Arcade Fire and Toni Collette
Everything Now is proud to present a more in depth advance look at “Money + Love,” a double video directed by David Wilson, written by David Wilson and Arcade Fire, and starring Arcade Fire and Toni Collette. “Money + Love” will be released March 15. The new teaser can be seen below.
“Money + Love” opens in the aftermath of Arcade Fire’s 360-degree deal with global media and e-commerce platform Everything Now, and features a narrative that unfolds over the course of full performances of “Put Your Money on Me” and “We Don’t Deserve Love” from the GRAMMY-nominated global No. 1 album Everything Now (Sonovox/Columbia).
“The concept of a double video really appealed to us, we’d always loved songs being put together as A and B sides… and these songs seemed perfect together. David has been a great collaborator for us since Reflektor and we were finally able to work with Toni whom we’d been wanting to work with for some time,” Win Butler states on the ambitious scope of the two-song short film.
“The ambition and scale of the piece was huge from the outset. I adore working with Arcade Fire – reacting to their vision and scale is a beautiful thing to creatively respond to,” adds director/co-writer David Wilson. “The belief and trust in me from the band made this one of the best experiences of my career. It’s an as-close-to-perfect collaboration that I can think of with me and Win hitting emails backwards and forwards continually over the formation of the script. The connection, communication and enthusiasm from the band on the multiple shoot days led to an extremely tight bond. I’m super excited for this to be out in the world.”
“Arcade Fire is on of my all time favorite bands. I was blown away when they asked me to be part of their video,” states actress Toni Collette. “It was a total pleasure acting with them and an even greater pleasure getting to know them. They continue to inspire and I continue to admire. I mean, who gets to do that? I am so lucky!”
Having closed out 2017 with a triumphant run through Latin America, Arcade Fire resumed its Infinite Content Tour on March 1st in Florida. The Infinite Content Tour will see Arcade Fire headlining sold out dates across the UK and Europe from April 6th at the 3Arena in Dublin through June 18th at the Stadthalle in Vienna. Following that, Arcade Fire will return to the States for a trio of festival headlines: Summerfest’s July 8closer (the band’s first Milwaukee appearance in 14 years), July 14th at Sloss Music & Arts Festival in Birmingham AL, and July 15th at Forecastle in Louisville KY.
