Placebo Shares New Music Video for “Beautiful James”
- British rock band Placebo, consisting of Brian Molko and Stefan Olsdal, has shared a new music video for “Beautiful James” directed by Gregg Houston.
The song was released back in September as the first single off of their upcoming eighth studio album “Never Let Me Go”.
The single received its first play during BBC Radio 6 Music.
“Who is James to you? And is James even a man? These are questions I’m not going to answer, these are questions I want people to ask themselves,” Brian Molko told BBC 6 Music. “For a long time ‘Beautiful James’ was called ‘Bad Piano’ because the main hook melody was written by me at five o’clock in the morning in the middle of a major bout of insomnia,” he said. “Then Stefan [Olsdal] had to take it and make some sense out of it. It became the keyboard riff, the main riff, of ‘Beautiful James’.”
The new album comprise 13-track and has been finished since 2019, but everything has been pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
He said, “I needed to do it backwards at the beginning to feel like I was doing something different.”
The album is set to be released on 25 March 2022. It is their first album in 9 years since the 2013 album “Loud Like Love”.
