Watch the mysterious new video for Paul Weller’s ‘Alpha’

The Modfather is back...

Paul Weller has released the video for new track ‘Alpha’ – and it’s an mysterious clip where the lines between fiction and reality become increasingly blurred. Check it out exclusively below.

The instrumental blues-infused track is taken from Weller’s latest album ‘A Kind Revolution’, and has been accompanied by a video that sees actor Jay Simpson slowly losing a grip on reality.

In the clip, he’s being frequently visited by mysterious figures wearing unsettling plague doctor outfits, and it all gets increasingly weirder until a sinister finale inside a church.


‘Alpha’ originally featured on the third disc of the ‘A King Revolution’ deluxe release, which originally dropped back in May.

The album also proved to have extra significance when Weller became a father for the eighth time in July, naming his daughter ‘Nova’ after a track on the record.

““The Weller family are proud to announce the birth of baby Nova, who was born at home on Saturday evening”, a post on Weller’s website confirmed.

“She was caught by her daddy after a long and beautiful unassisted labour. Hannah and Nova are doing really well and everyone is enjoying getting to know little Miss Weller.”

He’ll also head out on an arena tour early next year, taking in shows at venues including the Manchester Arena and London’s O2 Arena.
