GOOD LUCK, SEEKER THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED NEW ALBUM OUT NOW – LISTEN HERE
The Waterboys have released the video for ‘Why Should I Love You’ from the critically acclaimed new album Good Luck, Seeker out now via Cooking Vinyl.
‘Why Should I Love You’ is a fantastic cover of a lesser-known Kate Bush song, rearranged and rocked-up in Waterboys style, and illuminated by a romantic video.
Mike Scott explains, “The video was produced by Dutch film-maker Robert Jan Westdijk from photos I took of my wife Megumi Igarashi during our courtship in Japan. Through the lockdown Megumi has been in Tokyo and we’re having a very socially-distanced relationship right now. We’re OK but of course we miss each other. Knowing we were apart, Robert made the video as a gift for us.”
‘Why Should I Love You’ completes the set making a visual companion piece to what is one of the most essential albums of The Waterboys’ remarkable career.
