International crossover artist HAUSER shares the romantic music video for the Mexican standard "Bésame Mucho" from his Billboard chart-topping new album THE PLAYER, which is out now via Sony Music Masterworks, The video, which was inspired by HAUSER’s love of James Bond movies, was filmed in a striking black and white style evoking 1960s film classics like 'To Russia with Love' and 'Last Year at Marienbad'. It was filmed at @BOTANIQ Castle of Tura, Hungary, and follows HAUSER caught in a night of flirtation with an unexpected ending.
One of the most treasured songs in the history of Latin music, Consuelo Velázquez’s bolero smash has seen reinterpretations from such eclectic artists as Diana Krall, The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Cesária Évora, and Andrea Bocelli. In keeping with the untamed imagination of THE PLAYER, HAUSER chose to slow the track’s tempo down and deliver a darkly seductive rendition in the style of ’60s spy music. He said, “Because it’s one of the most famous songs from the Latin world it felt important to take it in a whole new direction, so we went with a James Bond vibe.”
THE PLAYER, which features the Czech National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Steven Mercurio, skillfully merges modern-day hits with timeless classics in custom HAUSER style. On the new record, he follows in the footsteps of his heroes, taking the stage as a cross-generational legend in his own right.
The superstar cellist and visual artist has already performed in over 40 countries across the world and appeared alongside such wide-ranging acts as Andrea Bocelli, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Steven Tyler and Elton John. Earlier this week HAUSER announced dates for his first-ever European solo tour; the REBEL WITH A CELLO TOUR includes two UK dates at Manchester’s O2 Apollo on 11th November 2023 and London’s The O2 on 12th November 2023. In the meantime, he will be taking part in next week’s Classic FM Live’s movie music spectacular hosted by Alexander Armstrong at London’s Albert Hall on October 10th.
“My vision for the first part of the show is to keep it more classical, and then for the second half the band and brass section will join me and we’ll get everybody up and dancing,” he said. “These songs are beloved by so many people, and I’m excited to share them in a way that no one’s ever heard before—I can’t wait to spread their joy, love, and energy all around the globe.”
