French artist ALB has released Endless Together, the first single off his third album soon to be released - now paired with this entertaining love story between the singer his female robot lover directed by Colin Solal Cardo.

Shot and styled in a retro futuristic style, the video sees the artist romancing the sexy robot Daisy - who at first makes an appearance on his television screen only - by performing the song for her. Then during an interlude, Daisy sings back at him while dancing seductively on a neon-lit stage, and joins him at the keyboard to perform her reply. As for his reaction, you could say he was struck by lightning. 

COLIN SOLAL CARDO:

"Coming into this project, I was inspired by the Timbaland-like beat which was super hip-hop - and at the same time, Clement's voice and storytelling hinted at something more intimate. I tried to express both through the candid lovestory with Daisy, but also with the energy of the dance sequences and the kind of editing you'd rather find in a rap video. The other challenge was to design Daisy herself, which was inspired by the drawings of japanese illustrator Hajime Sorayama.

"Daisy had to be feminine and curvy while still looking like a robot. She also had to dance which is super complicated when you have metal parts. Ultimately, a lot of different crafts and skills were involved in the making of this video, which also made it incredibly fun to make."
