Today, acclaimed Montreal musician, Patrick Watson, launched a new video for Good Morning Mr. Wolf (produced with the financial assistance of MuchFACT, a division of Bell Media Inc www.muchfact.ca). Dream and reality collide in Good Morning Mr. Wolf, starring Sophie Desmarais and Louis Négin in a surreal allegory of modern love.
Directed by Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski, Oscar nominated directors of the film Madame Tutli Putli, Good Morning Mr. Wolf marks the end of a year-long project to create the entire visual and filmic interpretation of Patrick Watson’s album Love Songs for Robots, from cover design to music videos and everything in between, including band photos and a virtual reality experience (Strangers with Patrick Watson, in collaboration with Felix and Paul Studios).
Watson is currently touring worldwide in support of Love Songs For Robots, with upcoming stops in New York and Philadelphia. The band will also play two sold out shows in Montreal in December and announced this week that a third show will take place at Le Metropolis, on December 18th. See below for details.
Watson composes, performs and records his albums with his full band of almost a decade, which includes Joe Grass (guitars), Robbie Kuster (drums/percussion) and Mishka Stein (bass). The recipient of Canada’s elite Polaris Music Prize in 2007, Watson and his band have performed to over 100,000 people at the 2009 Montreal Jazz Festival as well as with full orchestras in Amsterdam and Montreal. Raised and still living in Montreal, Watson himself has composed 15 scores for both film and television, including a trailer for “The Walking Dead” and Wim Wenders’ new 3D film “Everything Will Be Fine”, where he performed the songs “Cynical World” (an original for the film) and “Lighthouse.”
