King Krule releases the second single from his upcoming third studio album MAN ALIVE! with the new music video for “Alone, Omen 3,” co-directed by close friend Jocelyn Anquetil and the artist himself, Archy Marshall.

The visual delves into themes of interconnectivity and loneliness, displaying unanswered phones ringing and multiple cut-scenes of strangers alone, awaiting a response from their mobile devices. The cinematography is accented with drab color-grading, scenes full of people staring somewhere off into the distance and the 25-year-old artist draped in an oversized pastel blue suit surrounded by only reflections of himself in an endless house of mirrors. The video ends with the protagonist strolling away on a beach at dusk, holding his newborn daughter and walking beside his partner.

“I felt like I had gotten out of a dark place, and I was on a high. I appreciated the depression, but I also liked how I felt better in the here and now,” Archy explained in a press release about the inspiration for his latest music video.

“Alone, Omen 3” first debuted back in November 2019 through King Krule’s ambitious 16-minute ‘Hey World!’ short film. The minimalist black and white visual for “(Don’t Let The Dragon) Draag On” music video followed back in January, revealing the singer-songwriter burning at the stake beneath a full moon.

“More and more,” he explains via a press release, “I’ve been put off by the intention of speaking about what’s going on in society as a black-and-white thing, or trying to get to the bottom of why we’re in this position. So the album is mostly made up of snapshots and observations. There are a lot of real-time-and-place moments, songs talking about walking through the park just over there and getting a head injury – then there are other tracks which are just simplicity, looking at one particular situation and reflecting on it as somehow being super-profound.”

Watch King Krule’s latest music video above and stay tuned for MAN ALIVE!, out February 21 via True Panther/Matador Records. King Krule will also embark on a European and North American tour starting at the top of March.
