Darlene Love breaks out the beachwear and the celebrity cameos in her new “Forbidden Nights” music video. Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Steven Van Zandt, Joan Jett, David Letterman, Bill Murray and Paul Shaffer all make guest appearances for her summertime single.
The video shows Love driving to her beach concert with backup singers, picking up Jett and Shaffer along the way. Her packed red convertible passes by Costello playing soccer, Murray with a surfboard and Springsteen and Van Zandt choking each other out.
Letterman’s appearance doesn’t come until the end of the video. The retired latenight host can be seen eating a bowl of cereal with a full beard shouting, “Hey! I love you.”
Love has been a longtime favorite of Letterman’s. Every year, the singer would perform her most notable record and Phil Spector-produced seasonal classic, “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” on his “Late Night.”
Love’s album, “Introducing Darlene Love,” bows Sept. 18.
