After announcing his long awaited fourth album ‘Sillion’ is to be released March 24 on Transgressive Records; accalaimed English singer/songwriter Johnny Flynn now unveils the Simon Ryninks-directed video for first single “Raising The Dead.” Watch Here.
“Raising The Dead” is the first in a series of videos which will accompany Johnny’s new album. It’s about fixing possessions; all kinds of possessions. The videos for Sillion are part of a wider collaboration between Simon, Johnny and photographer Hanna-Katrina Jedrosz.
Sillion has grown episodically between Flynn’s commitments to acting, composing, and his young family. It’s an album about the sacredness of man’s endeavor to connect with the earth, while separated from it. It’s the sound of Flynn breathing in and breathing out.
There’s proving to be high demand for Johnny Flynn and The Sussex Wit’s recently unveiled March headline UK tour; the London show sold out in a few hours, the venue in Edinburgh has been upgraded, whilst all other dates are close to selling out.
