Rising songwriter and artist Mabel has created a video project to commemorate the opening of the new Tate Modern building. The video is directed by acclaimed choreographer Holly Blakey (Florence & The Machine, Jessie Ware) and the song in the video is an original composition for the project created by Mabel specifically for this special collaboration.
The video is reflective of Gustav Metzger’s Liquid Crystal Environment 1965, remade 2005 which is displayed within the new Tate Modern. The colourful, psychedelic patterns produced by light displays such as Metzger’s became icons of London’s cultural scene in the 1960s, as musicians in particular sought to create total sensory environments for the appreciation of their work.

As part of the Tate Modern's celebrations to commemorate the opening of the new Tate Modern building in London, rising singer/songwriter Mabel shares a new track entitled 'Talk About Forever', which was composed and commissioned specifically for this project.
Directed by Holly Blakey (Florence & The Machine, Jessie Ware), the accompanying visual is reflective of Gustav Metzger's Liquid Crystal Environment 1965, which is displayed within the new Tate Modern. Speaking on the collaboration, Mabel said in a press release: "It was fun working on this project with Holly and Tate. As a kid I adored music videos with choreography. Destiny's Child routines were often rehearsed with my sister and then we forced our family to watch multiple performances. I wanted to try to do an up-to-date version of that, using Metzger's Liquid Crystal Environment and the incredible Tate Modern building as our setting."
Mabel's brand new single - which follows up the critically acclaimed 'My Boy, My Town' - is expected to be released in the coming weeks via Polydor Records. -- The 405
