Published Nov 16, 2017Montreal songsmith Patrick Watson has returned with a brand new single and video. "Broken" was recorded last month and arrives ahead of his band's next record, which should be arriving in 2018.
"This is a song I just felt like sharing before the next record," Watson said in a statement. "Dedicated to the storms we went through."
The new track also arrives with a video, which was directed by Pedro Pires.
"We started with simple intuitive ideas such as characters fleeing or running away in fast moving vehicles," Pires added. "I then proposed to use reflections and flares to fragment the light to reveal a more impressionist moody state of mind of these various 'broken' characters."
Watch the clip for "Broken" below.
Watson's last full-length arrived as 2015's Love Songs for Robots, though he's since composed and released the score for Alexandre Aja's film The 9th Life of Louis Drax.
