Graham Coxon has launched an appeal to find fans to feature in the video for his new single, ‘What’ll It Take’.
Coxon has posted an instructional video online showing a dancer doing a range of moves and has asked fans to submit footage of their own versions of the steps. Scroll down to watch the film. The final music video, which is directed by Ninian Doff, will then feature thousands of clips of Coxon’s fans dancing to the first track to be taken from his new album, ‘A+E’, which is out April 2.
The best entries will also win tickets to shows on Coxon’s April tour as well as signed copies of the new album. The competition closes on Valentine’s Day (February 14). For more information visit: Grahamcoxon.co.uk/whatllittake
‘A+E’ is the eighth solo release of Coxon’s career and is the follow-up to his 2009 album ‘The Spinning Top’. Graham Coxon will tour in support of ‘A+E’ in April, playing 14 shows across the UK. These begin at Oxford’s O2 Academy on April 13 and run until April 30 when Coxon will headline Falmouth’s Princess Pavilions venue.
Meanwhile, Blur‘s Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon have been announced as special guests for this year’s pre-Brit Awards fundraising gig. The pair will join headliner Ed Sheeran and BBC Sound Of 2012 nominees Dry The River for the bash, which takes place at London O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on February 19 and is being hosted by O2 and War Child.

Bassist Alex James recently revealed that the Britpop legends would definitely be performing at the event, stating: “We’re going to play, which is brilliant, it’s like putting the Blues Brothers back together.”
