Claud is celebrating the release of their new album, Supermodels, with a Christina Xing-directed video for the song “A Good Thing” featuring none other than Paul Rudd as an exasperated but friendly mailman. Supermodels is out today (July 14) through Phoebe Bridgers’ Saddest Factory Records.
“I met him briefly in passing at a Taylor Swift concert and explained that there was a song on my upcoming album named after him, and he so generously gave me his email asking to hear it,” Claud says of their first encounter with Rudd. “In the email I explained that ‘Paul Rudd’ and many other songs on the record are about me trying to imagine myself as a cool and confident person similar to the types of characters he plays, in contrast to the real-life shy and nervous person I often am. Filming this music video really pushed me out of my shell in a lot of ways, as did making this album. I hope you like Supermodels as much as Paul Rudd and I do!”
