Snow Patrol have shared the official video for their new track, ‘Life On Earth’, featured on their upcoming new album Wildness. The band’s previous album, Fallen Empires, was released back in 2011, so fans are all in wait.
‘Life On Earth’ takes the focus off our everyday routine to more philosophical, eternal values. It also highlights the miracle of pregnancy and birth, defining our place on this planet. We see singer Gary Lightbody walk around the space station, on the one hand, while, on the other hand, there are visuals of pregnancy ultrasounds and newborn babies.
Like the upcoming album, Wildness, in general, ‘Life On Earth’ focuses on “true connectivity, our passion, our love, our communion with nature and each other. This is the kind of wildness the album is centred around. The loss of it. Trying to reconnect with it. To remember it,” explains Lightbody (via NME).
The music video was shot at the European Space Agency in the Netherlands and symbolically debuted on astronaut Tim Peake’s Twitter page. Give it a look below:
The new track sounds quite different than the lead single from the same album, ‘Don’t Give In’, which came out last month (watch ‘Don’t Give In’ music video here). Wildness, their first album in nearly seven years, will drop on May 25.
The process of writing the album obviously wasn’t the easiest one. Lightbody admitted to NME that he had to overcome a sort of writer’s block and scrap all the previously written stuff.
Snow Patrol will be on a compact tour of Northern Ireland and the Republic Of Ireland this May. See the venues and dates below:
