London Grammar have teamed up with iconic British director, Tony Kaye to create the visuals for new single ‘Oh Woman Oh Man’. The video, follows the release of recent singles ‘Rooting For You’, ‘Big Picture’ and most recently ‘Truth Is A Beautiful Thing’ and comes ahead of the release of the trio’s much anticipated second album, Truth Is A Beautiful Thing which is out this Friday, June 9 via Dew Process / UMA.
“Oh Woman, Oh Man’ mirrors the question of identity, and to what extent gender plays a role in it. We were lucky enough to work with the legendary Tony Kaye on this video, who handled these themes and questions with passion and sensitivity” says Hannah Reid of London Grammar.
Kaye says of the experience, “The grammar of London has taken me over for 2 score daze – maybe more I just don’t know. I kept losing the plot and finding it again. The work is my tag souvenir. The memory is my compass and Sgt Pepper as ever is always my target”.
On Truth Is A Beautiful Thing, the trio worked with the likes of Oscar winning producer Paul Epworth (Florence & The Machine, Adele), Mercury nominated Jon Hopkins (Brian Eno, King Creosote) and LA based Greg Kurstin (Sia, Beck) as well as Tim Bran and Roy Kerr.
Having recently performed at performing at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend, the band have a huge summer ahead with Glastonbury, Lollapalooza and more to come, before kicking off their now SOLD OUT UK tour in October.
