    6th July 2022 – (Paris) Jay Chou has released a music video for his new single ‘Greatest Works Of Art’ that was shot in Paris and features Chinese pianist Lang Lang.

    The new music video, shared July 6, was directed by Chou himself. It was set in the Samaritaine department store located in the French capital, and features visual references to Belgian artist René Magritte’s “The Son Of Man” painting and an actor resembling the surrealist Salvador Dalí. Both artists are mentioned in the song’s lyrics, as are Matisse, Monet and Van Gogh.

    Halfway through the ‘Greatest Works Of Art’ video, Chou faces off with Lang Lang at the piano.

    Last month, the Taiwanese Mandopop star had hinted at a new album in a vlog shot in Paris, teasing “old sounds” recorded with vintage instruments. In the final seconds of the video, Chou appears to be performing and recording music while standing on the staircase of the Palais Garnier opera house.

    That vlog also revealed an album release date of 15th July. The new record will be his first studio album since 2016’s ‘Jay Chou’s Bedtime Stories’.
