Savages share intense video for new song ‘Adore’ – watch

Track is taken from band's second album which is out on January 22

Savages have posted a video for a new track from their forthcoming album ‘Adore Life’ online.

The song – ‘Adore’ – is the third track to be posted by the band since announcing details of their second album. The record will be released on January 22 and is the follow up to 2013 debut ‘Silence Yourself’.

You can view the video, which is directed by Anders Malmberg with lighting and concept design by Tobias Rylander and sees Jehnny Beth sings directly to the camera, below.

The band previously shared a video for ‘The Answer’ and posted the track ‘TIWYG’.

Speaking previously about their forthcoming album, Savages released a statement saying: “It’s about change and the power to change. It’s about metamorphosis and evolution. It’s about sticking to your guns and toughing it out. It’s about now, not tomorrow. It’s about recognising your potential. It’s about self-doubt and inaction. It’s about you. It’s about me. It’s about you and me and the others. It’s about the choices we make. It’s about finding the poetry and avoiding the cliché.”

The statement continued: “It’s about being the solution, not the problem. It’s about showing weakness to be strong. It’s about digging through your dirt to look for diamonds. It’s about claiming your right to think unacceptable thoughts. It’s about boredom and the things we do to drive it away. It’s about being on your own so you can be with people. It’s about knowing what it means to be human and what it might mean one day. It’s about the parts and the sum of the parts. It’s about the music and the message: together, one and the same. It’s about bass, guitars, drums, and vocals. It’s about opening-out and never, ever dying. But most of all it’s about love, every kind of love. Love is the answer.”

‘The Answer’
