Army of Lovers continue their comeback with a new recording and a new video for their most well known and loved hit from the 90s – ‘Crucified’.
Enlisting the production skills of Niklas Bergwall (the guy behind September and Darin’s Så Mycket Bättre cover versions), ‘Crucified’ 2013 is predictably but pleasingly Clubbified 2013. And the party’s been taken up quite literally by Copenhagen Pride – who have chosen the new version as the official theme song for their 2013 festival.
The video features the trio prancing about in front of footage of the iconic original video. Simultaneously paying their respects and taking the piss. We love that they haven’t changed their behaviour in the slightest in the twenty years since the original.
It’s hard to imagine Army of Lovers gaining a whole new Army of Fans with this in 2013. But it is nice to know that a whole new generation of gay revelers may be introduced to the song – the genuine classic that it is.
