Stage and screen actor Cheyenne Jackson, recently seen on Broadway in the short-lived comedy The Performers, will release the third single from his upcoming 2013 album Dec. 18.
Directed by Nick Everhart and choreographed by Joey Pizzi, the music video for "Don't Wanna Know" was filmed on location in New York City and Connecticut and draws inspiration from Bjork's "Oh So Quiet" and Janet Jackson's "Alright."
In addition to Jackson, the video also features Matt Cavenaugh, Nick Adams, Joshua Buscher, Peter Chursin, Adam Fleming, Lindsay Janisse, Nina Lafarga, Robb Sherman, Brooke Wendle and Samantha Zak.
A sneak peek preview of the video follows:
The first single from the CD, entitled "Drive," can be purchased at iTunes. The second single, entitled "Before You," is also available.
Collaborators for the album include Sia Furler, Stevie Aiello and producer Thomas "Tawgs" Salter.
Jackson, who has been seen on television in the Emmy-winning "30 Rock" and the Fox musical comedy "Glee," has appeared on Broadway in Finian's Rainbow, Xanadu and All Shook Up, among others. He has appeared Off-Broadway in Altar Boyz and The Agony and The Agony, and at City Center in Finian's Rainbow and Damn Yankees.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
