An eerie video featuring the rotating head of Cate Blanchett, set to the beautiful sounds of Mazzy Star's Hope Sandoval and Masive Attack, that's what. If Cate Blanchett seemed a slightly surprising choice as star for 'The Spoils, this art-meet-anatomy music video directed by fellow Australian John Hillcoat will make you think differently. And who knows - maybe Cate Blanchett has been a secret fan of the classic trip-hop band for years?
The slightly surreal video, which will admittedly not be to everyone's taste, sees a mannequin-like face of Cate slowly decompose into a kind of mummy head to a slow-drip beat and the dreamy voice of Hope Sandoval. Think of this as two of your favourite '90s artists collaborating, with the added magic of Cate Blanchett. No word yet when the new Massive Attack album is due, but it's rumoured to be this year.
