Richard Hawley has unveiled the video for his new single, 'Down In The Woods'. Scroll down to watch it.

The heavy, psychedelic single is the second to be taken from his latest album, following 'Leave Your Body Behind You'. The album, 'Standing At The Sky's Edge', is Hawley's seventh solo LP and it debuted at Number Three in the Official UK Album Chart last month, his highest ever chart placing.

Richard Hawley recently said that his only ambition in his music career was to "avoid flipping burgers". He told Shortlist magazine that he was happy to live in a separate "bubble" away from the mainstream. Asked about his chart success, he replied: "Well, the chart thing is fucking mental so I presume people are digging what I do. But I can't really feel anything else yet. I live in a bubble anyway and that's for a good reason. It keeps you real and keeps you sane."

Hawley, who also said he'd "never, ever been interested in fashion or being fashionable", added: "I would have been content just playing the music I loved in clubs and pubs. My only real ambition was to avoid flipping burgers or ending up in the steelworks."

Hawley is set to embark on an extensive UK tour later this year.
