Irish busker-turned folksy superstar Glen Hansard has debuted a video for his new single, “Love Don’t Leave Me Waiting.” Hansard confirmed in a Tweet that the video was shot in Jamaica. The video features a number of locals showing off their best dance moves.
“It’s like going out on a trip to an exotic island: It’s summer, it’s full of hope, it’s exciting, it’s alive, it makes you want to dance and sing along,” director Heidi Rose told Rolling Stone. “That is what Glen’s ‘Love Don’t Leave Me Waiting’ feels like. We shared this feeling with a group of young men and women, who very spontaneously and generously got involved in the making of our video.”
Hansard’s debut solo album, Rhythm and Repose is set for a June 19 release through Anti- Records. Check out the video for “Love Don’t Leave Me Waiting” below.
