Jamie Lidell Shares New Video For "I Wanna Be Your Telephone"

Not long after the release of Jamie Lidell's latest album of wonky, electronically minded soul music, Compass, and following the pretty rad footage found in his piece for "The Ring," comes this new video for the hard-hitting, funky single "I Wanna Be Your Telephone." Images of Lidell and an anonymous (and quite attractive) burlesque dancer dancing about all strange and playfully in front of a red curtain is basically all there is to see during the video's three and a half minutes, but the music is great enough (and did we mention that girl is damn cute?) that we'd allow nearly anything to accompany its infectious grooves.
