PETE YORN & SCARLETT JOHANSSON RELEASE MUSIC VIDEO FOR “IGUANA BIRD”

Today, Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson share the music video for their latest single “Iguana Bird.” Watch it HERE.

Directed by actress, producer, and filmmaker Bonnie Wright (best known for her role as Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter series), the clip serves as the perfect visual companion to the song. “Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johansson’s new single ‘Iguana Bird’ evoked for me that new loneliness you feel in the wake of a break up, having spent every moment with someone you now have to create new memories that feel forced and out of touch with what you know,” Wright told PAPER about the track. “I was inspired by the dance scene in Jean Luc-Godard’s film Bande à Part, most particularly Anna Karina’s character, and the vulnerable beauty often explored in French cinema during the ‘60s. I have been an admirer of LA based choreographer and dancer Nicola Collie for a while and it was such a joy to direct her in this enclosed world we created for the music video.”

“I have been a fan of Bonnie’s work,” Yorn says about working with Wright. “She came to us with a visual concept that really captured the emotion behind the song in an original way.”

The song remains a standout from the pair’s critically acclaimed Apart EP—available at all digital retailers now via Capitol Records. Forbes praised the “fun” track, while  High Snobiety called it a “charming duet carried by a wave of crashing guitars.”

Last month, Yorn launched An Evening with Pete Yorn, the You and Me Tour. The critically acclaimed gold-certified singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist performs along the East Coast and Midwest on the intimate run. Tickets for the remaining dates, including limited edition options to purchase VIP backstage experiences where fans can meet Pete, watch soundcheck and even attend a pre-show performance of a song in the dressing room, are on sale now. Full routing can be found below and visit PeteYorn.com for more details.

Apart continues to incite applause from fans and critics alike. In an extensive feature, Entertainment Weekly claimed, “The dreamy alt-pop on the new EP demonstrates that the creative kinship between the troubadour and the movie star is much closer than you might expect.”
