What a way to start the day. A little tennis action, some new Martin Solveig music, featuring Canadian friends Dragonette (who've just launched a new web site along with announcement of a new single) and a pretty rad video to boot. If you recall, last year Solveig teamed up with the band for Boys and Girls, a track with the support of Jean Paul Gaultier, and an equally stylized video. Today, we carry on in that tradition, sans major fashion designer.
Hello is the new single from Martin's forthcoming album, Smash. The track is a jaunty little pop number, and we dig it, but hell, we're gonna go all tennis terminology on you and say the video is ACE and we LOVE it. Sports references!
The clip features Bob Sinclar, French comedian Gregory Darsa and tennis stars Novak Djokovic and Gael Monfils. The video was shot at Roland Garros in Paris in front of a real audience during the French Open.
Toss on a sweatband and watch the long-player below.
