“Into The Nightlife” is one of the tracks on Cyndi’s new album Bring Ya To The Brink which she flew to Sweden to work on, this one being with the Murlyn production team’s Peer Åström (who also co-wrote and co-produced Brink’s “Echo”). While in Sweden, Lauper also worked with Andreas Kleerup (on “Lay Me Down”), who crafted Robyn’s international hit “With Every Heartbeat,” and Axwell (“Rain On Me”).
The video was shot at New York’s gay bar Splash. In the video, adult film actor-turned-singer Colton Ford also loaned his body out for the shoot. The song I love, but Lauper’s performance in the video is a bit scary to me (she acts more like a witch than a diva to me).
