Ian Brown ties new video into anti-war campaign

The controversial 'Illegal Attacks' clips airs online tonight

Ian Brown will release the video to his new single, ‘Illegal Attacks’, via the Stop The War Coalition’s website this evening.

At half past midnight tonight (August 17) the video for the song, which features a guest vocal from Sinead O’Connor, will be available to view.

The promo has an anti-war theme, and tells the story of a British soldier being enlisted and sent to war. A twist at the end of the video reveals that two hostages in the war are his mother and father.

You can see an exclusive shot from the set in this week’s issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands now.

Meanwhile ‘Illegal Attacks’ will be released on September 17.

It is the first single from Brown’s new album, The World Is Yours, which is out on September 24.
