Years & Years soundtrack short film for H&M x ERDEM directed by Baz Lurhmann
Years & YearsÂ haveÂ collaborated with H&MÂ and the incredible directorÂ Baz Luhrmann(Romeo + Juliet, The Great Gatsby) toÂ write the song â€˜Hypnotisedâ€™ for the campaign filmÂ forÂ H&Mâ€™s forthcoming collaboration with Erdem.
The film,Â â€œ he Secret Life of Flowers” was premiered in full at the flagship H&M store on 5th Avenue in New York City on Tuesday evening with Baz Luhrmann hosting theÂ official premiere party. Following the screening, Years & Years took to the stage toÂ perform a number of their hits andÂ â€˜Hypnotisedâ€™, the song created especially for the film.
On working with Baz Luhrmann, Olly said:Â â€œIt was a really wonderful experienceÂ working with Baz, heâ€™s so passionate about every detail, and I was reallyÂ excited to be part of somethingÂ so creative. Plus, Iâ€™ve always been a fan ofÂ Erdem. The song is about falling head over heels for somebody and it totallyÂ up-ends everything youÂ thought you knew about yourself.â€
â€œI wanted the film to beÂ like a whole movie. Itâ€™s a very modern love story, set in a country house thatÂ is full of its own secrets and itâ€™s like aÂ metaphor for our times – itâ€™s harshÂ out there in the world, but in here, the things that really matter keep growingÂ in an eternal spring,â€ says BazÂ Luhrmann.
The ad airs globallyÂ acrossÂ TV, cinema, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and more fromÂ today.
