The monochromatic video interview shows Damien Rice’s detailing the extended process of the making of his forthcoming third album My Favourite Faded Fantasy. However, it is also a beautiful formal reintroduction to the acclaimed folk singer whose media shy visage is exhibited in a series of magnified cuts. In the beginning of mini documentary, he speaks so delicately of “Rick”, it’s easy to mistaken his gushes for a lover. But in fact, it was for music industry messiah and the album’s producer — Rick Rubin. Other than the occasional moments of Rice’s breathless grace, he continues to lyrically describes the usually utilitarian process of recording an album, “It’s a little bit like going for a walk in the woods, without having a plan of where you’re going,” and with that said, he ends the one-sided interview as he boards his flight.
