Ted Leo is self-releasing a new album, The Hanged Man, this Friday (September 8). Previously he shared the album’s first two singles, “You’re Like Me” and “Can’t Go Back.” Now “Can’t Go Back” has a video. A press release says the video is inspired by 1970s commercials for K-Tel compilations. It features Leo performing the song in various outfits, sometimes at the piano. And sometimes text appears as if it’s a TV ad. Rachel Lichtman directed the video. Watch it below, followed by his upcoming tour dates.

Leo hasn’t released a solo full-length album or one with The Pharmacists in seven years, since 2010’s The Brutalist Bricks, but earlier this year he announced a Kickstarter campaign for a new one and shared a five-minute sampler of songs.

The Hanged Man is Leo’s 13th album, but the first credited solely to his name (rather than Ted Leo and the Pharmacists). Leo described in a previous press release the recording of the album as a time of “personal desolation that felt fallow but was actually very fertile.” Acclaimed graphic novelist Emil Ferris (My Favorite Thing Is Monsters) did the cover art. Despite not releasing a solo album in seven years, Leo did team up with Aimee Mann for 2014’s collaborative album The Both.
