As she embarks on the final leg of Morrissey’s American tour, KRISTEENYOUNG has made available a new video for the song “I’ll Get You Back” from her current EP V THE VOLCANIC.  Teaming with director Seaton Lin, who did the same honors for her last video for“Fantastic Failure,” the clip is set to a special remix by the album’s producer Tony Visconti and features KRISTEEN in a piece of her custom wardrobe engaging in a ‘Dance Apache’—a violent French dance from the early 20th Century associated with Beatnik culture–to the song.  It can be viewed and reposted from:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mkPD_6xX4g.
Meanwhile, the New York-based one-of-a-kind singer, songwriter and performer–who has a thrilling four-octave vocal range, captivates with a dramatic performance style and designs her own eye-popping stage wear—has been thrilling audiences with her one-woman show featuring selections from V THE VOLCANIC and her catalogue. This marks almost the 150th time YOUNG has been personally invited byMorrissey to open for him, most recently this past summer for his shows in the U.K.
On V THE VOLCANIC, YOUNG drew upon the cinema, writing originals inspired by supporting characters—some of them quite unexpected:  Violet Bick in Frank Capra’s 1946 favorite It’s A Wonderful Life (“V The Volcanic”); the Angry Apple Tree of 1939′s The Wizard of Oz (“I’ll Get You Back”); Lucy Westenra in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1992 take on Bram Stoker’s Dracula (“Why Can’t It Be Me?”); Old Lodge Skins in 1970′s Little Big Man (“Now I’m Invisible”); the android Pris from 1982′s Blade Runner (“The Devil Made Me”); Sarah Jane Johnson in Douglas Sirk’s 1959  melodrama Imitation of Life (“Imitation of Life”); and Cleopatra in the 1963 Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton adaptation of Cleopatra (“Fantastic Failure”)….the exception to the supporting character rule.
