Loyle Carner has shared a new track, ‘Nobody Knows (Ladas Road)’.
The song is taken from new album ‘hugo’, which is set to land on 21st October via EMI.
Speaking about ‘Nobody Knows (Ladas Road)’, Loyle explains: “[It’s] a song about fatherhood, forgiveness and the gaps inbetween. The space between two absolutes. Everybody knows what it feels like to be othered, these are the words I wrote, when I felt that way.”
It comes with a video directed by Uncanny, who reveals: “We aimed to push even more focus and attention towards the powerful words by stripping back any distractions, not even allowing for cuts. Through this, we were able to give the focus to Loyle and allow space for his performance solely to captivate the viewers’ attention.
“These themes felt perfectly encapsulated by shooting with one of only 3 infrared cameras in the world. The way that infrared renders skin through the 65 is just incredible, we kept referring to it as this glassy, almost porcelain look. The way that the landscape is also rendered is surreal, making everything look almost alien, heightening the sense of not quite belonging. The sheer size of the 65 sensor also really helped us to create something that looked unique and really special, with the incredibly shallow depth rendering Loyle and the set as an almost dream world, somewhat akin to a dolls house.”
