Mike Patton & Jean-Claude Vannier share new Corpse Flower song “Chansons D’Amour”
Corpse Flower — aka Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr Bungle) and composer/orchestrator and Gainsbourg collaborator Jean-Claude Vannier — have shared a second taste of their debut album in the form of this dark, twisted, string-laden look at “songs of love.” “When I was a little boy, love songs terrified me, with their stupid Ophelias, faded flowers of melodramatics singers, quavering vocalises of another time, barbaric rituals, screams of impatient sexes, furious and bloody refrains, like in this beautiful and poisonous video,” said Vannier. “Afterwards, I lived some love stories and it was even worse, all a bazaar puppet show that moved me despite myself, took me hostage and blames me for these crimes that I did not commit.” Check out out via the gorgeously shot video made by
Corpse Flower is out September 13 via Ipecac Recordings.
