Corinne Bailey Rae's new video "I'd Do It All Again"

“I’d Do It All Again,” the first single from Corinne Bailey Rae’s forthcoming album, The Sea, goes to radio this week, the full album to be released in January. The video for this song was made available yesterday:

Corinne Bailey Rae MySpace Music Videos

I'm just going to quote after the info I received: "The video is directed by acclaimed film director Jamie Thraves, the man responsible for such iconic videos as Radiohead's 'Just' and Coldplay's 'The Scientist'. Talking about the video Thraves exclusively told MySpace "Corinne and I met just as I was formulating the idea. She told me she was fan of my work, said she thought it was very real looking, cinematic and quite dark and that's what she wanted for her video, nothing too sunny she said. I looked at her other videos and realised just how sunny they were and why she wanted to do something different for this song but on the day we filmed it was such a lovely sunny day - I told Corinne the sun just seems to follow her around, but it's okay because in sad moments the sun can underline sadness just as easily as rain.""

Seems the unanimous review for this new album is a rawer sound and a deep pain that dyes pretty much all the songs (as is only natural after recent events in her life).
I'm not too dazzled by this first single, though it's really nice to listen to and I'm very much looking forward to listening to the other tracks on the album.
She will tour extensively in 2010, backed by many of the musicians who played on the new album.

So, would you do it all again?
