HUGH CORNWELL has unveiled a new video ahead of his forthcoming new album.

'Coming Out Of The Wilderness' is the opening track from the former Strangler's Moments Of Madness, his first new album since Monster four years ago. The video is the work of award-winning US animator Jesse Bond.

Featuring ten new tracks, Moments Of Madness was produced by Cornwell who also played all the instruments himself. "It's like I've got a stew pot of sounds where I've put in a bit of Joe Meek, a bit of Lou Reed, a flavour of The Doors, a bit of this, a bit of that and I mix it all up and it tastes good," says Cornwell. "I'm like a cook when I make records in that I don't follow any recipe."

'Coming Out Of The Wilderness' is available to stream/download here.

Set for release on 21 October, Moments Of Madness is available to pre-order here.
