Suede have released a video for their new single, ‘Life Is Golden’.
The track is taken from their forthcoming album ‘The Blue Hour’ which is out on 21st September, and follows the previously released ‘The Invisibles’ and ‘Don’t Be Afraid If Nobody Loves You’.
The video was filmed in Pripyat, Ukraine near the site of the infamous Chernobyl power station, “It’s not about the tragedy of the disaster that happened all those years ago”, says director and long time Suede collaborator Mike Christie. “It’s about the unstoppable force of life that’s consumed the desolate landscape left behind by humans. It seemed wonderfully apt to set the song to cracked concrete, all conquered by towering golden trees.”
Following the release of the album, Suede will be embarking on a European tour that includes two nights at London’s Eventim Apollo.
