Throw the net! Crab Day has arrived. With the glamorous slam of Cate Le Bon and band pulsing in and out, the moving pictures would together in "Crab Day" (the movie) transpire to mean more or less than words. Directed by award winning visual artist and Turner Prize nominee, Phil Collins, "Crab Day" utilizes inspiration and elements from Cate's stunning forthcoming album. Actually, other than Crab Day, there are no words in this particular picture - just the luxuriant images crafted by Phil Collins and Cate; views on the everyday with a screw or two loosened on the doors of the cupboard. Or perhaps this is what every day looks like somewhere - we can only hope! And not seek to know what it means, for as Cate would opine, most of everything we know aligns as equally with nonsense as it does sense. "Crab Day" is here!

Cate says: "My desire was not to work with any artist on visuals for Crab Day, but to work with Phil. He creates a landscape that is anarchic and wide-open through careful consideration and exploration. There is no map. It is an empowering isolation that fills me up when I see his work. It's beautiful, strange and inescapably human. To have him take Crab Day and re imagine it as a visual piece is an absolute honor. No stone was left unturned and the friendship that we have fostered over the years was the anchor of the collaboration. He has made a coat that we can both wear. "
So take a seat and stay for a while, watch "Crab Day":
