Villagers (aka Irish musician Conor O’Brien) is releasing his new album, The Art of Pretending to Swim, on September 21 via Domino. He previously shared a video for the album’s “A Trick of the Light.” Now O’Brien has shared a video for another new song from the album, “Fool.” Bob Gallagher directed the video, which features O’Brien on a restaurant date, but shot from the point of video of his partner. At one point O’Brien literally rips out his heart and offers it to his date. Watch it below.

Gallagher had this to say about the “Fool” video in a press release: “The video is a surreal take on a marriage proposal, which is the ultimate gambit in love. The scenario pushes how much Conor’s character is willing to overlook his partner’s shortcomings, and convince himself that everything is fine. You could call it foolishness but you could also consider it a kind of optimism, striving to see the best in a situation.”
