Let me preface this by saying Mr. Hudson‘s “Fred Astaire” is one of my favorite songs of the year. With that said, it’s good to see that the English crooner decided to give the track new legs with a stylish visual.
Directors Rankin and Vicky Lawton creatively shot the treatment, which interweaves shots of Hudson in and out of a sleek James Bond-like character. Viewers get to follow the talented artist as he preps for this role and travels to see his gorgeous love interest.
The G.O.O.D. Music collaborator passionately sings, “Let me take you there, cross the floor like Fred Astaire,” while driving through the countryside.
“Fred Astaire” will be available to purchase via iTunes on July 21. Until then, see Hudson do his thing in the accompanying video below.
