From the moment of its arrival last year, Bright Light Bright Light’s third studio affair Choreography caused quite a stir among fans and critics alike. In its combination of visual and aural aesthetics sourced from classic and modern pop, the album was a rare stroke of pop smarts from the charismatic and enterprising Welsh vocalist/lyricist/producer born Rod Thomas. The album’s fourth single “I Only Want To Please You” is now set to be fleshed out into an extended play, as a complement to the pair of Cinematography EPs that followed Choreography.
Premiering today exclusively via Albumism and following the uniform excellence of previous videos produced in support of Choreography (“All in the Name,” “Symmetry of Two Hearts” and “Running Back to You”), the stormy love song’s accompanying video places its intelligent tongue firmly in cheek. Directed by Matthew Canada, Bright Light Bright Light pays homage to the 1984 cult horror film Murder-Rock: Dancing Death with the inimitable Ana Matronic of Scissor Sisters in tow. Her sensuous presence was already featured on the cut itself, so her appearance on celluloid is just as compelling.
Slated for official release on September 15th in digital and limited edition CD formats, the 6-track I Only Want To Please You EP includes radio edit and 12” versions of the title track, three new non-LP cuts in the form of “Transmission,” “Call On You,” and the Ana Matronic-supported cover of Pet Shop Boys’“West End Girls,” plus the Vinny Vero & Steve Miglioni Remix of “West End Girls.”
In conjunction with the EP’s arrival, Bright Light Bright Light will hit the road next week for a series of headlining gigs across the UK, followed by a supporting slot on Erasure’s early 2018 tour. Be sure to catch his performance when he descends on your town soon and in the meantime, enjoy the exclusive world premiere of the “I Only Want To Please You” video below.
