Rolling Stone reports:
Cody Simpson has collaborated on a new music video with his partner Miley Cyrus while the pair are stuck in their Los Angeles home for quarantine. The song, “Captain’s Dance With the Devil,” uses a sailor metaphor to tell the story of a teenage heroin addict. In the visual, Simpson dresses up in a designer sailor’s costume and other couture get-ups, surrounded by makeshift settings and moody lighting. At one point, Simpson appears in drag, lip-syncing to the music.
Simpson provided commentary about the project in reply to a comment on Sunday on Instagram, where he wrote: “The captain/sailor’s struggle with personal freedom at a time long ago in which this wasn’t accepted, and you would in turn be vilified or condemned (often killed) for breaking apart from societal convention and proposed expectations or standards of ‘masculinity’. In this case the Captain’s (and my own personal) affinity for drag.”
