Everything Everything have shared the new video to “Planets” taken from the forthcoming album ‘RE-ANIMATOR’, set for release on August 21.
WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.
The video for ‘Planets’ was directed by frontman Jonathan Higgs during the coronavirus-enforced lockdown and, as a press release explains, it “focuses on a chimpanzee [puppet] lost within an existential dilemma: if the universe is so unfathomably huge, how can one primate come to terms with his relative insignificance?
“There are no grand revelations, just the awareness that living in the moment – and especially singing – is as close as he gets,” the description continues.
“It’s a light-hearted metaphor for a question that lies out of mankind’s grasp.”
