Video of the Moment #220: Lightspeed Champion

By on Thursday, 11th February 2010 at 6:00 pm

It’s been 2 years since Lightspeed Champion‘s (Devonte Hynes) last official release. But he is back in 2010 with the fantastic ‘Marlene’, the first single from his highly anticipated second album, ‘Life is Sweet! Nice to Meet You’.

The song’s bridge of “and everybody knows you want a baby / and God knows everybody wants one too” is full of swagger and humour. Nice one, Dev. The promo video is part American western, part surreal mini soap opera. Check it out below.


The ‘Marlene’ EP is available now on iTunes. ‘Life is Sweet! Nice to Meet You’, Lightspeed Champion’s second album, will be released on 15 February in the UK on Domino Records.
