Ricky Gervais has released a new music video to coincide with the release of the movie David Brent: Life On The Road.
The video, which accompanies the song Slough, teases footage from the film, which had its world premiere last Wednesday (August 10).
In the video, Gervais’ David Brent says “This next song is about the greatest place in the world, Slough”; the song plays out accompanied by live shots of Brent’s band, Forgone Conclusion, as well as footage of the Berkshire town.
Speaking to The Sun about the song, Gervais revealed that he had sent a demo version of the track to David Bowie, who “loved it”, reportedly saying “I’d like to hear a whole album of David Brent singing about provincial towns of Britain.”
Gervais has previously revealed the film will almost certainly be his last big project involving Brent.
Speaking to Digital Spy about the future of the character, Gervais explained: “I said I’d never bring back The Office and I won’t. This isn’t that, this is David Brent now – what he’s doing now.”
“There might be [things we] spin off from [the movie],” Gervais added. “I want to bring an album out of the soundtrack and I want to do some live gigs, so he might pop up now and again, but as a huge big project – a series of David Brent, or The Office, or another movie? Probably not.”
