I was delighted to be asked to participate in Israeli Creators, a web series that spends time at the working space of some of israel's finest artists. Created by Shachaf Dekel, I recommend to check out all episodes. But especially mine.

radioeins, my favorite Berlin station has started to publish its 'All time best 100' lists in different categories. I was flabbergasted to find 'Did You Really Say No' at #76 on the Duet category. Mind you this is an *all time* top 100. The ENTIRETY of time, a subject Einstein devoted his life to make sense of, is hereby divided to 100 time units, of which I inhabit unit #76. The full Spotify playlist is on the first comment. It's a pretty good list accept for the questionable choice here and there, but the duet is a somewhat questionable format, let's admit. And thank you Radioeins!

I am happy to report that this Thursday I've received the YDA award at Cannes Lions Fetival. It is an award given by the jury to new directors who have done extraordinary work in their fields, and I've received the silver screen award for directing Second Hand Lovers. A night earlier I was in Athens where I was awarded the first prize for best music video at the LifeArt festival. All things considered, not a bad week. If u haven't watched the video so far, what more needs to happen?? Please find it in the comments. Love, Oren

Last night Second Hand Lovers won the Berlin Music Video Awards! Category: Best Concept. I stormed the stage excited yet composed, grateful but collected, to receive this useful statue. Thanks to everyone in the festival and the SHL video team!

Second Hand Lovers is nominated for best concept video at the Berlin Music Video Awards! The successful American musician, Beck, and the successful British act, alt-J, were worried upon receiving the news that the almost successful Israeli artist, Oren L, will compete in the same category. The festival is this week. I am already in Berlin marking the territory. Video link on first comment.

רז ישראלי כתב מלים יפות על שירי LOOK AT HER GO בישראל היום. הסמקתי פעמיים ומיד האדמתי. השיר הזה שונה משאר שירי האלבום והם, כל אחד שונה זה מזה, כך שהם דומים מהבחינה הזאת. האזינו לשיר: האזינו לאלבום: האזינו ללבכם!

My jaw dropped when I discovered a Deezer playlist by Francoise Hardy, one of my all time beloved French singers, titled 'Songs of my life' and among names like Barbara, France Gall, PJ Harvey, I've discovered a song by myself! What a lovely gift from the Universe. Sending my love right back with one of my favorite Hardy's songs. (The aforementioned deezer list on first comment)

A lovely article and album review of Bedroom Crimes in the Jerusalem Post. I remind myself not to believe everything I read in the paper.

בשבוע שעבר התארחתי אצל ירון לונדון. תמיד רציתי לשוחח עם ירון, מאז שלא עברתי את תהליך הסינון למסיבת גן. הייתי אז ילד עצוב ובלתי צפוי. בינתיים הפכתי להיות גבר עצוב ובלתי צפוי. ועל זה כבר עושים קריירה. תודה לירון לונדון על שיחה נעימה ותודה לעורכי התכנית.

גלריה הארץ ועכבר העיר הכניסו את Bedroom Crimes לרשימת עשרת האלבומים הישראלים המומלצים לפסח, וגם כתבו יפה. כמדומני שאני האלבום היחידי ברשימה בשפה האנגלית ואני שמח שהכניסו אותי פנימה אחרי 40 שנה במדבר. תודה לעלמא אליוט הופמן וטל אורן על המלים. להאזנה לאלבום כאן: הכתבה המלאה: טל אורן Alma Elliott Hofmann Haaretz הארץ

פלייליסט לילה בגלגלצ! ככה פתאום שיר שלי חביב נכנס לפלייליסט הלילי. אני במכונית באיטליה בדרך לפסטיבל, משקיע 12 דקות בלהוריד אפליקציה שיודעת לצייר עיגול אדום מסביב לשורת המחץ. כגודל המאמץ כך גודל הסיפוק.

זה נכון שהוצאתי אלבום בשבוע שעבר, *אבל* בשבוע שעבר יצא לאור גם ספר ילדים חדש פרי עטי בשם ״ספר השתיקות (הממש חשובות!)״. אני גאה ואוהב את הספר הזה, שהתחיל כשרבוט של כמה שורות על גבי מפית בקפה של תולעת ספרים והתגלגל להיות שיר רב-בתים בחרוזים, ולבסוף ספר. אם אתם מבוגרים, מהרו וקנו אותו לילדכם. אם אתם ילדים, תרדו מיד מהפייסבוק יש פה מלא שטויות שאתם לא צריכים לקרוא. תודה לכל המעורבים בהוצאת כתר/מודן ותודה ענקית לאיתי בקין המאייר הנפלא. אורן.

I just won the best music video award at the Miami Short Film Festival. This is for a video that isn't out yet, the next single from my album titled "Second Hand Lovers." Sadly, i could not be in Miami to receive the award. Nor was i able to make photos of myself dressed in my white suede suit, sipping a cocktail with Don Johnson. The video will only be available next year. So, basically, all i have to share with you is this laurel. Yes, and the song.
