Directed by CC Wade and co-written by Wade and Jack Marshall, the visual features cameos from Krule’s bandmates and takes inspiration from the aesthetic of classic horror movies, focusing on a wild beast terrorizing Peckham, England. Staple characters from a horror plot appear throughout the video including the loving couple, the drunkard and the mob that goes after the monster, who’s later revealed to be Krule all along.
Man Alive! dropped in February 2020 and Krule was scheduled for a lengthy tour, however, the COVID-19 pandemic put a halt to his plans. Instead, he opted to release a live performance of the entire album in April as a gift to fans.
