MARC VALENTINE has a new video for his latest single which he's premiering exclusively with Vive Le Rock!
'Death Is Overated' is taken from the Last Great Dreamers frontman's debut solo album Future Obscure. It's available now as a digital double A-side single with the track 'Break My Heart Anyway', also on the album.
The video, by Darren Stockford, was shot in and around north Norfolk. Both the song and the video feature special guest Wreckless Eric.
”I wanted to release two songs at the same time, kind of like an old school double A-side single when I was a kid," Valentine explains. "I felt it was kind of an exciting thing to do and a good precursor to the release of the album on 8 July. I like the juxtapose of the two songs together too. It was particularly special working with Wreckless Eric on ‘Death Is Overrated’ - and hearing his voice on the record is a real spinetingling thrill. His backing vocals are truly sublime and he’s really put his stamp on the song. I think we’ve both been through the dark recently and yet somehow made it back to the light. Then you flip sides to ‘Break My Heart Anyway’ - an unrequited satire and a fizzy serving of summer trash-pop!”
Both tracks are available now on Spotify.
