Tricky recruits ‘Walking Dead’ actor for ‘Sun Down’ video – watch

Norman Reedus, best known for his role as Daryl Dixon, stars in new video

The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus co-stars in the video for Tricky’s new single ‘Sun Down’.

‘Sun Down’ is the latest single from Tricky’s latest album ‘Adrian Thaws’ and features guest vocals from London-based singer Tirzah.

Norman Reedus, best known for his role as tough zombie-killer Daryl Dixon in HBO’s horror drama The Walking Dead, stars in the video alongside actress Mizuo Peck (Night At The Museum). While fans of the show might be used to seeing Reedus stalking the woodland of post-apocalyptic America with his trusty cross-bow, both Reedus and Tricky play fictionalised versions of themselves in the ‘Sun Down’ video.

Shot in Brooklyn and directed by Tricky himself, Reedus, Tricky and Mizuo are shown to be dealing with the violent effects of a domestic dispute.

Of his experience working with Reedus, Tricky claimed that it was “so good working with Norman and Mizuo… Lee Jaffe has been telling me for a long time I need to direct more. Working with Norman and Mizuo has really inspired me to go and direct another movie.”

‘Adrian Thaws’ is Tricky’s eleventh solo release and follows last year’s ‘False Idols’ album. The record features collaborations with new talent including Nneka, Mykki Blanco, Blue Daisy, Oh Land, Bella Gotti, and Francesca Belmonte.
