He’s the suave Russian who charmed his way into the hearts of many in Stockholm two years ago. And despite being very busy with his latest album and tour, Sergey Lazarev is keeping his cool.
The song “Шёпотом” (Whispering) was released nearly a year ago as promotion for his latest album “В эпицентре” (V Epitsentre), and it now has a video to accompany to dark, gentle atmosphere.
Sergey Lazarev – Whispering (Official Music Video)
The video is as mystical and sedate as the song. It features plenty of religious imagery, including a confessional, prayer beads, wine, a snake and religious text. Sergey plays opposite a woman who varies from looking nervous in a confessional and looking sullen wearing a veil. She also appears topless, holding a flower and staring blankly at the viewer. Sergey gently caresses the woman, and begins whispering something in her ear. It’s all very mysterious and certainly creates questions about the true inspiration of the song.
Sergey is as poised as ever in the video. When he’s not interacting with the woman, he’s riding a horse and looking sharp in a wide-brimmed hat. It’s an interesting direction for him, but still is true to the Eastern European art-style we love and he looks right at home. And as much as we love his wall-climbing and special effects, it’s nice to see he’s got substance as well as style!
It’s a great time to be a Sergey fan with all the new videos and music — in Russian and English. But the treats aren’t over yet: the Russian Adonis will be touring for the rest of the year! The next leg of his N Tour will begin in Ufa on 11 October. He will also be performing at various places in Germany in March next year. Grab those tickets, y’all! Judging from the promotional pictures, the religious imagery will carry over into the tour. It’ll be very interesting to see how things go in the future for him, but we expect nothing less than spectacular as usual!
