Late last November, King Krule debuted four new songs with the release of his Hey World! short film. Self-directed under his real name Archy Marshall alongside close collaborator Charlotte Patmore, the 16-minute lo-fi grainy visual premiered “Perfecto Miserable,” “Energy Fleets,” “(Don’t Let The Dragon) Draag On” and “Alone, Omen 3.” Now the mysterious singer-songwriter returns with an ominous black and white music video for “(Don’t Let The Dragon) Draag On.”

Minimalist guitar chords accent a slow zoom out of Archy’s eyes with a burning fire reflecting in his pupils. As he moves further away in the frame it’s revealed that he’s burning at the stake beneath a full moon in a scene straight from an Ari Aster film. “There’s a dragon in the flames/ Don’t step out/ You’ll get burned by the rain/ It’s a lonely corridor/ Like the walls in a second hand store/ There’s too many puppets/ Marching in the parade/ Put on the mask carry on the charade,” Krule sings in his signature bass.

His next full-length project Man Alive! will release February 21, 2020 followed by a UK/Europe and USA/Canada world tour. Tickets are currently on sale via his official website.
