Juliana Hatfield releases her video for “Can’t Stand Losing You” directed by Rachel Lichtman (Network 77) today. It is the first track on her most recent covers project Juliana Hatfield Sings ThePolicewhich debuted in the Billboard Top 200 upon release in November.
Like the album itself, the video pays homage to the Police’s “Can’t Stand Losing You” video and features three Julianas representing Sting, Andy Summers and Steward Copeland. “Rachel shot me playing each individual part on each different instrument and then used her magical skills to put all three of me together, like an all-woman, cloned Police.”
She admits, “I think this is the first time anyone out there will be seeing me play drums–usually I do it in secret!”
This is the third video collaboration for Juliana and Rachel Lichtman who first worked together on “Lost Ship” and “Broken Doll” – both cuts from Juliana’s 2019 acclaimed solo album Weird.
“This was another hilarious spark of an idea that we just ran with and made happen ourselves, which is always great for us creatively, and I think the result really reflects that,” says Rachel.
“It’s no surprise that Juliana once again so masterfully created a tribute so imbued with her own deeply talented musicianship and personality. I wanted to somehow visually capture that same energy: Juliana playing all The Police through her cool, unique prism.”
The video release comes a week before Juliana and her band (Dean Fisher on bass, Mike Oram on second guitar, Chris Anzalone on drums) embark on a month-long U.S. tour on January 16th. She will perform material from her solo catalog, most recent album of originals Weird (2019) along with select covers from Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John (2018) and Juliana Hatfield Sings The Police.
