Damien Rice shares the video, directed by Icelandic filmmaking duo Arni & Kinski, to accompany ‘I Don’t Want To Change You’, the breathtaking lead single lifted from his upcoming new album, ‘My Favourite Faded Fantasy’, out 3 Nov in the UK. The album is his first collection of new tracks in eight years and was produced by Rick Rubin and Rice.
Here’s the thrilling album’s title track: ‘My Favourite Faded Fantasy’…
On his new album ‘My Favourite Faded Fantasy’, Damien says: “I sat for a minute, and imagined myself with one more hour on the planet. And I noticed that I didn’t care about whether I had sold more records, or less records. What was most important to me was wanting to shed whatever mask I’d been wearing so that I could at least be myself in the world, instead of some version of myself that I thought was appropriate.”
