Actress Samantha Morton has directed the video for The Kills' new track, 'The Last Goodbye'.

The video celebrates ten years of the band and was shot in a photobooth by Morton, who recently made her directorial debut with the film The Unloved.

Nowness reports that Jamie Hince of the band said of the low-key single: "I wanted to make it completely different from anything we'd normally do... I used an octagon keyboard from the '60s which takes flexi-discs with real bands playing and mixes them together."

Singer Alison Mosshart went on to say of the slow paced ballad: "Life goes on. It starts off being the end of the world but then ends up alright."

In the interview, Mosshart also reveals her memories of The Kills first ever show. "I'll never forget our first gig - February 14 2002 in front of 70 people. It was the scariest moment of our lives," she recalls. "We couldn't believe we were doing it."

Hince added: “The first time I saw her [Mosshart] perform was like watching Patti Smith for the first time. This awkward little sparrow on stage just had so much confidence and was obviously so comfortable performing. It was fascinating. I thought if I was going to be in another band it was going to be with her. She's my best friend and has been in every aspect of my life."
