Dinner aka Danish multi-instrumentalist Anders Rhedin has announced a new album titled Dream Work, a lush collection of synth and guitar-laden indie pop that expertly channels Ryuichi Sakamoto, early British indie, and the sound of water, due for release October 22, 2021 on Captured Tracks / Remote Control Records. Dream Work features vocal contributions from labelmates Molly Burch and Charlie Hilton as well as Lina Tullgren and Nicolai Koch. The album’s announcement is accompanied by a video for lead single ‘Midnight In My Head (ft. Charlie Hilton)’ directed by Anne Tse, featuring lip syncing and perfectly interpretive choreography from the video’s star, Carly Johnson.
Anders Rhedin shares: “It felt natural to have someone else play out what they felt this song was about. I know what my personal vision of this song is, so it seemed more interesting to see someone else’s vision; to see Anna and Carly’s. Also, I’ve done so many Dinner videos featuring me and / or my face; I thought it’d be nice with a bit of variation.”
Regarding the video, director Anne Tse has this to say: “Based off of the song’s dreamlike impression, it felt right to create an alternative world of movement to visualize Dinners music. Knowing Carly’s ability to translate artistic mediums into her own inspired us to use multiple locations, seamlessly connecting them through dance. It was a fun process to be trusted by Dinner, and to work with him and Carly to create this.”
