The video for the song was directed by the Mael Brothers and Richie Starzec and it stars, arguably the greatest actor of this generation, Cate Blanchett. Sparks said this about it via a press release: “We met Cate Blanchett in Paris at the César Awards last year, little knowing that a year later, one of the great actors of our time (and a splendid person!) would graciously consent to lending her bootie-shaking skills to the first video from our new album, The Girl Is Crying In Her Latte. Dreams really do come true. We will sleep well tonight knowing that forever we can say we co-starred in a film with Cate Blanchett!”

Sparks said this about the album: “This is as bold and uncompromising as anything we did back then, or for that matter, anytime throughout our career”.

The band will go on tour to support the album starting in May in the UK and coming over to the USofA before hitting Japan.
