Details on Kanye West‘s forthcoming short film Cruel Winter and the associated G.O.O.D. Music album are still murky but he’s just released a 54-second trailer for the visual project which should build anticipation for what’s to come.
The short clip, directed by Eric Christianson, features the almost demonic voice of George Bush Snr making his “New World Order” speech, as the world prepared for the Gulf War in ’91. Combined with sombre instrumentation and shots of the natural world facing a cold winter, it has a powerful effect.
Whilst the Illuminati crazies will rant that this finally proves Kanye is privy to some nonsensical international conspiracy only insane people know about, it mostly just reveals that Cruel Winter (album and film) is likely to be a darker affair than Cruel Summer, but hey, the title could have told you that. Watch the video trailer below:
No word yet on the status of the Cruel Summer film.
