Radiohead's Philip Selway unveils sci-fi video for first track from new solo album

'Coming Up For Air' will feature on Selway's new LP 'Weatherhouse'

Radiohead drummer Philip Selway has unveiled the video for the first track to be taken from his new solo album.

Click above to watch the surreal, science fiction themed promo for 'Coming Up For Air', which will feature on the LP 'Weatherhouse', which comes out on October 6. The video was directed by Spanish collective NYSU. Speaking about the promo, Selway commented: "Good videos can make you rethink the song that you've written. They also shine a light on what makes the track tick. NYSU have made a visually rich and intriguing piece for 'Coming Up For Air' which stands up in its own right, yet feels in tune with the track."

'Weatherhouse' follows Selway's 2010 solo debut, 'Familial'. The new album is a collaboration with Adem Ilhan and Quinta – artists who have previously performed in Selway's backing band. It was mostly recorded in Radiohead's studio in Oxfordshire.

"From the outset we wanted the album to be the three of us, and we covered a lot of instruments between us. With a studio full of inspiring gear and a great-sounding desk, we felt like a band. Different musicians stretch you, and I felt stretched on 'Weatherhouse', but very enjoyably so," said Selway in a statement.

The 'Weatherhouse' tracklisting is:

'Coming Up For Air'
'Around Again'
'Let It Go'
'Miles Away'
'Ghosts'
'It Will End In Tears'
'Don't Go Now'
'Drawn To The Light'
'Waiting For A Sign'
'Turning It Inside Out'
