"Weekend Lover" is one of those singles that has sing-a-long accessibility with an enticing dance floor edge that already harvested the support from Lovedisco, WAWA, Sosua & Mad, Gareth Emery, Paul van Dyk, Soulsurviours, Dave Pearce, Lewis Dene, James Blond, Phonatics and Paul Oakenfold; at the same time, magazines such as OK! Magazine, The Daily Mail, Khaljee Times, Hamburger Morgen Post and Riviera Life TV all covered the release of the track.

Oscar nominated director Whit Stillman secured "Weekend Lover" for his new, fourth motion picture entitled "Damsels in Distress" that closed the Venice Film Festival and is currently in release by Sony Pictures, marking his return to Hollywood in over twelve years. And now with kind permission of Whit Stillman and Sony Pictures Classic Inc., a music video has been created with original footage from the movie.

Says Victoria Aitken: "I knew that "Weekend Lover" would be a brilliant addition to Whit's movie soundtrack. I've been a damsel in distress many times myself and it is what "Weekend Lover" is all about. It's a story written from the heart, really. All guys try everything to get what they want, saying the sweetest things, being beyond funny, romantic, charming and texting you for hours, when all they want is.... -So it's in a way my message to watch out and don't become just a weekend lover. Especially over the upcoming long holiday weekends!"
