That long rumored Kristen Stewart and CHVRCHES collaboration has finally arrived! KStew turns in an exceptional directing performance in the video for a new live rendition of the Scottish electropop band’s song Down Side Of Me. The song, originally from CHVRCHES’ excellent sophomore album Every Open Eye, gets a beautifully stripped down treatment in the understated and finely nuanced video. Kristen Stewart’s creation feels incredibly intimate and expressive in its subtle imagery and meticulous detail. In fact, we find ourselves cheek to cheek with Lauren Mayberry as she delivers a powerful and exposed rendering of the song. This new version of Down Side Of Me is CHVRCHES’ contribution to a 7″ vinyl records compilation that benefits Planned Parenthood. “7-inches for Planned Parenthood” will be released this fall, and it will also feature artists and bands like Mary J Blige, Bon Iver, St. Vincent, Sharon Van Etten, Feist, John Legend, Foo Fighters, and far, far more.
