Music videoEdit

On 17 January 2015, Ware confirmed on her Twitter account that the fourth single to be released from the album would be "Champagne Kisses".[1] Chris Sweeney directed the video, which was published on Ware's YouTube account on 11 February 2015.[2] The video shows surrealistic images that evoke the idea that Ware is patiently waiting for her turn in experiencing the supreme love she sings about in her song. The color palette is strongly composed by primary and secondary colors. There is no digital technology portrayed in the video but only objects from the analogue era. Most of the outfits worn by Ware are inspired by 80's fashion apart from a black suit that could be from 90's. Ariana Bacle from Entertainment Weekly wrote that watching the video "is like stepping into a modern art museum: Two-toned pills sit on silver chargers, clones of Ware are bound together by only hair, and bodies succumb to the fun mirror effect—but without any fun mirror in sight."[3]
