La Roux gets hard-hearted on catchy new single ‘Gullible Fool’

Sometimes you've just got to do you

La Roux has released ‘Gullible Fool’, a hard-hearted but catchy new track from her long-awaited third album ‘Supervision’ – watch the song’s video below.

Teasing the song on Tuesday (December 3) via social media, Elly Jackson offered up a distorted first taste of ‘Gullible Fool’ in the form of a colourful and kaleidoscopic visual.

In the clip the track’s title is backed by images of Jackson as phone line interference interrupts a brief snippet of the song. You can see the teaser below.


Now releasing the song in full with an accompanying video, Jackson said in a statement: “‘Gullible Fool’ is the most special and meaningful song on the record for me, because I feel like it encapsulates a cycle of a life, and that couldn’t have happened if I wasn’t in the process of writing something else. It describes the feeling of being overly trusting, and living under the assumption that you shouldn’t need to protect yourself if you are nice to people.”

Watch the song’s official video below:

‘Gullible Fool’ is the second song to be lifted from ‘Supervision’, the follow-up to 2014 album ‘Trouble in Paradise’.

‘Supervision’ is set for release on February 7. You can pre-order it here.
