Watch: Gruff Rhys – ‘Bad Friend’

Gruff Rhys shares ‘Bad Friend’ – the third and final track from his new album Sadness Sets Me Free before its release on 26th January. Remarkably, Sadness Sets Me Free is Gruff Rhys’ 25th long playing record in a 35 year recording career.

Gruff says on his new track “People always refer to ‘good friends’. This song is toying with the idea of the ‘bad friend’. Maybe a bad friend is still better than not being a friend at all. Some friends function better than others, but they’re not enemies.” The video was directed by long term co-creative visual mastermind Mark James, and filmed on location through Wales and at Hard Lines Coffee in Canton, Cardiff.
