Wilde, who is currently starring in HBO’s acclaimed rock ‘n’ roll themed drama Vinyl, is no stranger to directing. She was behind the video for No Love Like Yours by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, which was released earlier this year.

She confirmed her involvement with the band via a series of her own Instagram posts, featuring Chad Smith, Noelani Tsunami and a picture of Wilde herself.

Check out the series of snaps from the forthcoming clip below.


Director time out.
