Widowspeak share new single and video ‘The Jacket’

Widowspeak have shared a new music video for ‘The Jacket‘, the title track off their forthcoming sixth studio album – to be released March 11 via Captured Tracks / Remote Control Records. In signature Widowspeak style, ‘The Jacket’ builds on repetition and live room energy as the same chords start to change shape and hypnotise over time. Molly Hamilton croons “no no no, you could never let it go”, speaking to both a physical jacket and its embodiment of an old self. 

The song’s video, directed by OTIUM, features Robert Earl Thomas as a satin-clad protagonist making his way through a southwest cityscape in a series of vignettes both surreal and mundane. He carries a jacket with him while killing time, pressing his luck with a roll of the dice and curiously engaging with the world he encounters before running to escape it. Amidst the desert sunset, the jacket is forgotten and the dice buried: a swarm of ants where they once were.
