Stuart A. Staples, frontman for England’s Tindersticks, is releasing a new solo album, Arrhythmia, on June 15 via City Slang. Previously he shared its first single, “Memories of Love” (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Now he has shared another song from the album, “A New Real,” via a video for the song he self-directed. The minimalist video features a view of the sky from a moving vehicle and then an image shot through a moving train window. Watch it below.

Staples had this to say about the video in a press release: “I made the first part of this film on the way to City airport, London on November 13th, 2015. We were on our way to Skibbereen in County Cork to celebrate my 50th birthday with friends. Later that night would be the Paris attacks and the madness of tracking down loved ones. But for this moment, a glass roofed taxi in the rain on my way to a place and people I love was a special moment. The song arrived on Christmas Day 2016, but I felt the connection straight away.”

Arrhythmia is Staples’ first solo album in 13 years and it features a 31-minute long instrumental track, “Music for ‘A Year in Small Paintings.’” Staples sings and plays guitar, bass, chimes, q-chord, philichorda, bells, Wurlitzer piano and vibraphone on the album. Arrhythmia also features Dan Mckinna (piano), Thomas Belhom (drums), Seb Rochford (drums), Julian Siegel (clarinet, quartet arrangement), David Boulter (musical saw), and Neil Fraser (guitar). “Music for ‘A Year in Small Paintings’” was inspired by a film by Claire Denis about paintings by Suzanne Osborne, who is Staples’ romantic partner.

Tindersticks’ last album, The Waiting Room, was released in 2016 via City Slang.
