Johnny Flynn has unveiled the video for his new single The Water which features guest vocals from Laura MarlingThe Water references the life-giving and taking properties of the subject matter, “The water can’t drown me / I’m done with my dying.” A bleak sentiment brought to life with disarming vocals, simple guitar plucks and breathtakingly beautiful percussion.

This is the third single from his recent album Been Listening and is released on the 1st November.

This is the animated video for Barnacled Warship, the second single to be taken from the album and is directed by Christian DeVita, lead storyboard artist on Wes Anderson’s brilliant Fantastic Mr Fox as well as Tim Burton’s forthcoming Frankenweenie, it’s a staggeringly beautiful video. Give it 5 minutes to watch – we promise you won’t be disappointed.

New from Johnny Flynn

Johnny Flynn has marked the announcement of his return with the release of an exclusive free track from his forthcoming new album.

Kentucky Pill is the first track to be taken from Been Listening, which is released on the 7th June via Transgressive Records.

While acclaimed debut album A Larum was couched in an English folk style, Been Listening spreads its wings further. Inspired by the primitive mystery of Blind Joe Taggart, the title track is inspired by an itinerant evangelist from 1920s Carolina who used a series of pseudonyms to play the blues, then considered the devil’s music, in the hope of fooling the Lord whose word he was meant to be spreading. Sweet William Part 2 is the latest chapter in an ongoing fable about a young man’s journey that is inspired by Herman Hesse’s Siddhartha. And Kentucky Pill has an African, hi-life influence that is the result not only of Flynn’s own heritage (his mother is South African), but of a change in band personnel.

The new album was recorded with Johnny’s band The Sussex Wit in London, Washington and Seattle and effortlessly captures stories in songs with a universal resonance and with those musical influences ranging from Africa to America’s Deep South. It features collaborations with Laura Marling and Anna Calvi.

Pre-order from Amazon here.
