Carlo Capobianco releases video for “Sleeping with the Enemy”

Canadian singer-songwriter Carlo Capobianco has unveiled a video for his new single, “Sleeping with the Enemy”.

Hot on the heels of the sultry love affair that was recent single, “Pray To You,” he continues to push the boundaries with his unapologetically sexy flair for dance tunes — this time an imploring request for release of a partner who is unequivocally wrong for him.

“‘Sleeping With The Enemy’, if even more so than my last single ‘Pray To You’, is what I believe to be the epitome of my album,” says Capobianco. “Sonically, it is like a dark dream or a Tim Burton story. I wanted to make sure that the feeling of unknowingly, or knowingly, loving something so deeply — can be as euphoric as it can be blinding.”

The songwriter shines in his visual component to telling the story… Capobianco’s stories come to life in his music videos; his Bowie-esque androgyny fused with his Prince-like allure is a new-age take while nodding to the pop/glam rock stars of the past.

“We shot the music video at the beautiful Marriagi Hotel in the Exchange District in Winnipeg,” he reveals. “That gorgeous hotel has several themed suites, and we chose Rome. The video was directed and produced by Leigh Lugosi, a new friend and wonderful creative partner. The concept and idea came kind of naturally, and I thought that filming it in a hotel was kind of ironic. Releasing it on Valentine’s Day was even funnier to me.”

Capobianco will release his debut EP, Pray To You in spring 2022, which includes “Sleeping With The Enemy” and the title track, “Pray To You”.  The seven-song strong album has been a passion project of the artist.

“I am glad to say that the record is finished, and I can’t wait to get it out there into the world, as the story really does connect fully when listened from top to bottom,” he says.
