Daphne Guinness has just collaborated with world-renowned photographer David LaChapelle on a new music video. The track titled “Heaven” is the latest single from Guinness’ widely praised new album ‘Revelations’ and was recorded with David Bowie producer Tony Visconti. Guinness, who grew in up in Ireland, is better known in international fashion circles for her friendships with Alexandar McQueen and Isabella Blow. Most recently, actress Catherine O’Hara revealed that Guinness was the style inspiration for her character Moria Rose on the hit Netflix show Schitt's Creek.
LaChapelle, who has worked with everyone from Elton John to Nicki Minaj, has collaborated with Guinness previously. In 2009, he photographed Guinness in Dublin’s Wax Museum whilst he was in Ireland presenting his “American Jesus” exhibition. The pair secured a nomination at this year's Berlin Music Video Awards for “Revelations” the music video for the title track of the new album.
Guinness describes the new track as “a classic heartbreak anthem” that references the “glamorous golden era Hollywood” whilst considering “the death of the American dream”. Guinness' creative partnership with Tony Visconti was forged via an introduction from his long-standing collaborator, David Bowie. “Bowie was a huge influence on me,” says Guinness; “He mentored and encouraged me to pursue music. It was him that introduced me to Tony.” Her new album was recorded at Les Studios Saint Germain, Paris.
Revelations the new album by Daphne Guinness is available now on all streaming platforms.
