Cate Blanchett shows off dance moves in Sparks’ new music video

Actress Cate Blanchett dances the night away in pop duo Sparks’ new music video for the title track of their album, ‘The Girl is Crying in Her Latte’. The music video came out yesterday March 3, and the album of the same title will be released on May 26.

Blanchett is seen sporting a yellow suit with matching sunglasses and red headphones. The ‘Tár’ actress is front and center, showing off her spunky moves with Sparks’ Ron and Russell Mael in the background.

Fans are loving Blanchett’s surprise feature in the band’s music video.

Sparks duo loved working with Cate Blanchett

The American pop-rock duo Sparks, composed of brothers Russell (vocals) and Ron Mael (keyboard), had a blast working with Blanchett on their latest music video. Russell disclosed in an interview with Variety that the dancing was entirely Blanchett’s idea.

We didn’t even know she was gonna necessarily be dancing. It was more like ‘Come and stand in our video’ — you know, that would’ve been fine too. But that was what she felt like doing to that song,” Russel said.

Blanchett also commented on how enjoyable it was working with the brothers, and how much she loved their artistic vision.

“I love the way they think,” the actress gushed. “I love their sense of humor, and how they take the work seriously, but not themselves. You know, ‘the girl is crying in her latte’ — it’s so deep and shallow, simultaneously.”

Sparks returns to Island Records for the first time in 47 years

Sparks’ new album ‘The Girl is Crying in Her Latte’ is the band’s first release under Island Records in nearly half a century. Sparks was formed in 1966 and their most recent release was their 2020 album, ‘A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip.’

Russell Mael told Variety about the reason behind Island Records singing the band again, nodding to the duo’s efforts to continue pursuing a unique sound.

“They’re not signing us because it was such a great time we had in the past and the nostalgia of having Sparks again, but basing it purely on what we’re doing now musically,” the singer revealed.

He continued, “They thought that this album was as striking as ‘Kimono My House’ was during the time when they signed the band in the ‘70s.”
