Placebo are back with their first new studio recording since 2013’s Loud Like Love album. They’ve unleashed an eerie new music video for a song called Jesus’ Son, which features on their forthcoming retrospective hits LP A Place For Us To Dream.
Directed by Joe Connor (Paul Weller, The Maccabees), the clip was filmed on location on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia, and combines epic shots of the band performing on a beach at dawn, alongside traditional Sardinian carnival figures wearing creepy-ass bovine masks and sheepskin clothing.
The surreal clip captures the spirituality that pulses through the soulful pop rock tune. Its release also marks an important milestone for the band — 20 years since their self-titled debut album dropped in 1996.
The retrospective hits album it features on will be released on Friday, 7th October, and to further mark their two-decade career milestone, Placebo are also set to release a new EP titled Life’s What You Make It. It features six previous unreleased tracks, including Jesus’ Son and a cover of the Talk Talk classic Life’s What You Make It.
