Daphne Guinness – Fatal Flaw | Music Video
Daphne Guinness has released the visuals for “Fatal Flaw” directed by Nick Knight and the first single lifted from her forthcoming debut album, Optimist In Black, due out via Agent Anonyme/Absolute on May 27.
Daphne says the creation of the song began during sessions with co-writer Pat Donne in her native Ireland. “We went walking, and Pat nearly ate deadly nightshade. I said ‘that’s probably not a good idea’, but Belladonna is what the Egyptians used on their eyes to make them bright. That’s what inspired the song”.
The track is also be released on the shimmer-effect bonus disc of the limited edition vinyl issue of Optimist In Black. The disk will feature “Fatal Flaw” on one side, and on the flip side a ‘hidden’ etching of one of Daphne’s own original poems (viewable only when the vinyl is held up to a light). This edition will only be available through the 500 strong pressing.
