Former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes is releasing a new solo album, World’s Strongest Man, on May 4 via Hot Fruit/Caroline International. Previously he shared the album’s first single, “Deep Pockets.” Now “Deep Pockets” has a self-directed and self-edited video featuring Coombes taking an epic Uber-pool ride. Coombes has also announced some U.S. tour dates. Check out the video and dates below.

Coombes had this to say about the video in a press release: “I shot the ‘Deep Pockets’ video on a shoestring, mostly in LA at the end of 2017. The idea came from the lyrics and memories of weird night drives over the years - a never-ending car journey laced with paranoia, intermittent hallucinations and unexpected carpooling. I liked the idea of getting together with some fun, interesting people in a car at night, filming it all and just seeing what happened. It worked out well. They all did great.”

The album is the follow-up to 2015’s Matador. A previous press release said World’s Strongest Man was inspired by “Grayson Perry’s autobiography The Descent of Man, Frank Ocean’s Blonde, Californian weed, British woodlands, unchecked masculinity, Neu!, and hip hop (and a whole lot more besides).”
