The song has been reworked into a creeping piece of sawlead synth pop, while the video is inspired by David Cronenberg’s Videodrome and Tobe Hooper’s Poltergeist – watch it below.

In a press release, Matthews describes how the video reflected “feelings of disconnect” during COVID lockdown.

“I developed this idea where a man becomes haunted by a beautiful alien – who can only access him through his television set. Long live the new flesh !,” he said.

‘Immediately’ is set for release on February 19.
