This week’s #ThrowbackThursday is a bit of a one-hit wonder in terms of big releases for this artist, as this is The Supermen Lovers’ (aka Guillaume Atlan) most well-known release.
Guillaume started The Supermen Lovers project back in 2000 when he quickly wrote and recored his debut single, ‘Starlight’, with Mani Hoffman, which was released in September 2001. This song was later included on his debut album, ‘The Player’, which was released in 2002.
‘Starlight’ received positive reviews and reached Number 2 in the UK charts.
Not only was the song incredible, but the music video was pretty memorable too! Directed by French animator, Numero 6 (who also directed Super Furry Animals’ ‘It’s Not The End Of The World?’ the following year), the video sees a “potato” man writing and recording ‘Starlight’ in his bedroom before attempting to get a record contract. He meets a mouse, Mexican skeletons and aliens along the way; it’s well worth a watch!
‘Starlight’ is available to purchase on iTunes, right now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/starlight-radio-edit-feat./id279296572?i=279296579
