Years & Years Debuts New Song in Flowery Baz Luhrmann Fashion Film

The Secret Life of Flowers is the gayest thing you'll watch this week. Guaranteed.

“As for myself, I hold no preference amongst flowers as long as they are wild, free, and spontaneous.” Those are the guiding words of wisdom uttered by the flamboyant matriarch of a family of floral enthusiasts in The Secret Life of Flowers, a gorgeous new short film for the upcoming H&M and Erdem collaboration.

It’s no surprise that the film is gorgeous given that Hollywood’s most eccentrically over-the-top director, Baz Luhrmann, is behind it, but this actually feels like a full movie stuffed into four minutes. Oh, and it may be the gayest thing we’ve seen all week thanks in part to a new original song called “Hypnotized” from Years & Years and an abundance of sexual tension between the two men frolicking in the flowers.

Without spoiling anything, there is a love triangle, a beautiful mansion overrun with metaphorical and physical flowers, and a dinner scene with enough dramatic tension to last a lifetime. As Luhrmann described, “I wanted the film to be like a whole movie. It’s a very modern love story, set in a country house that is full of its own secrets and it’s like a metaphor for our times—it’s harsh out there in the world, but in here, the things that really matter keep growing in an eternal spring.”

Speaking on the collaboration, Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander said: “It was a really wonderful experience working with Baz, he’s so passionate about every detail, and I was really excited to be part of something so creative. Plus, I’ve always been a fan of Erdem. The song is about falling head over heels for somebody and it totally up-ends everything you thought you knew about yourself.”

Watch it and reconsider your entire Halloween costume because the outfits in this are everything.
