It hard to believe less than 12 months has passed since Keaton Henson released his painfully delicate and vital debut Dear, but he has clearly not been resting on his laurels after its success, because his sophomore album Birthdays is set for release on 25 February. Ahead of the release, Henson has put out a video for the single ‘Lying To You’, a track which blows away any assumptions that his second album has been rushed. The stripped down, heart-wrenching nature of Heston’s experience is ever-present. The video was directed by Autumn De Wilde who also worked on some video clips for the late, great Elliott Smith. And just in case you miss it, check out the girl’s ‘used tampon’ badge at the beginning of the video. That’s the most severe fashion statement I’ve seen all year.
