Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli

Happiness is just a hairflip away.

"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".

New Order - "Tutti frutti"

After "Restless" released some month ago (here on Morphosis), iconic Brit band New Order, currently consisting of Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert, Phil Cunningham and Tom Chapman, are back with "Tutti frutti", the second single video lifted from their tenth studio album, "Music complete" -their first without bassist Peter Hook and their début with Mute Records. The cover art was designed by long-time collaborator Peter Saville, which comprises a montage of lines with four colour schemes: red, yellow, green, and blue, which varies in pattern depending on the package. Directed by Tom Haines, the video finds an aging TV host wrestling between reality and fantasy and fame and irrelevance on the set of his own variety show. The track itself features vocals from Ely Jackson aka La Roux, while Italian actor Ricky Tognazzi plays the role of the out-of-touch host. "Tutti frutti" was inspired by New Order's love of Italo-disco records. "When we started up, we used to listen to a lot of Italian electro records," said drummer Stephen Morris. "I really have no idea who they were even by. This guy just used to send us mixtapes, and you'd just play them in the car. That's all we had in the car, this tape of Italian electro. So since it was an early influence, we decided to get a bit of Italian playfulness in it".
