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. Read our review here.
‘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.”
Nursery rhyme synths and whispered vocals that are distinctively Mike Scott. This track swirls and dances before taking flight with a cracking guitar solo.
