Daniel Avery and Alessandro Cortini soundtrack Alexander McQueen’s Paris Fashion Week show

'At First Sight' is taken from the pair's forthcoming collaborative album 

Daniel Avery and Nine Inch Nails keyboardist Alessandro Cortini have teamed up to soundtrack a show at Paris Fashion Week.

Taken from their forthcoming debut collaborative album, 'Illusion of Time', the duo's 'At First Sight' was previewed during a presentation of Alexander McQueen's Autumn/Winter 2020 show at the annual showcase. Check out a video of its usage below.

Sarah Burton, creative director of Alexander McQueen, said, "The collection is a love letter to women and to families, colleagues and friends. We went to Wales and were inspired by the warmth of its artistic and poetic heritage, by its folklore and the soul of its craft."

'Illusion of Time' is out via Phantasy Sound/Mute on 27th March. Speaking about the album, Avery said, "It was very much a shared process. "I would like to credit Alessandro with his belief that music has a life of its own, as well as the importance he places on the first take. That even something that may be considered out of step by some should be respected."
