NEKO CASE SHARES NEW VIDEO FOR 'LAST LION OF ALBION'
Inspired by forces of nature and acts of a mercurial, forgotten god, Neko Case’s latest album Hell-On is a record sealed by fire and filled with love, rage, and dangers that might lay waste to everything at any moment. So if you wake up dazed in a smoking landscape, walking through the detritus of your own lost civilisation with the smell of ash in your hair, your favourite sweater gone and a new song in your head, don't say you weren't warned.
Today Case has released the new music video for the anthemic track “Last Lion of Albion”, a requiem of a song for the magnificent landscapes and creatures that have been erased from our planet by the effects of humans.
"I’m very honoured and excited to debut this video for “Last Lion of Albion” by one of my very favourite artists, Laura Plansker,“ Case explained. “I’ve loved her work forever; she‘s so skilled at using handmade figures and props to create surreal worlds. Her work perfectly balances humour and darkness in a way that breaks my heart. She has a way of making something so artificial so very alive. The turning of the lion’s head to look at the sky, or its own reflection makes me cry my eyes out. There is so much straight ahead compassion in Laura’s work, there’s no need to manipulate emotion of the viewer, it is the perfect balance. I’m so happy to share it here with you!"
