Rough Trade

Alela Diane


The video for Alela Diane’s new single ‘Desire’ has arrived! The song was written by Alela and her husband Tom Bevitori who features in the video (he’s the guy strumming on the rooftop, not the drunkard in the bar). “The song is about a woman I know who shall remain anonymous … It’s not about me,” Alela told Spinner. “We shot the video in the Soho area of London. The close-up shots were filmed on a rooftop three roofs down from where Elton John allegedly wrote ‘Your Song’.” The video was directed by Andy Dunn.
