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.”
