Andy Bell has shared a video for ‘I Was Alone’, a new song taken from his debut solo album The View From Halfway Down. Watch it above.
Andy describes it as “a Spacemen 3-influenced song about dealing mentally with solitude”, and it’s certainly a world away from the sunny psych pop of lead single ‘Love Comes In Waves’, which was released last month.
Drowsy and downbeat, it feels its way through almost seven minutes of swelling keyboards and guitar effects. The video, which was made by Andy himself, is appropriately meditative and atmospheric.
‘I Was Alone’ is also included on the free covermount CD on the new issue of Uncut magazine, which is in shops from tomorrow (September 17).
The View From Halfway Down is out on October 9 on limited-edition blue vinyl, CD and as a digital download.
