Ash have released the music video for their latest single Annabel.
The 6Music play-listed single is taken from their upcoming album Islands, released on 18th May 2018. The releases mark the band’s return to their original label home Infectious Music.
Annabel is directed by Luc Janin and it stars 23-year-old Clement Vannini, a French skateboarding wunderkind who was born without his right leg.
Speaking about the new video, Ash say: “When we heard about Clement Zannini, we felt that he perfectly embodied the spirt of the song; facing your fears and tackling them head on. We were thrilled that he agreed to star in the video and show off his awesome skills.”
Says Clement: “We spent three days filming with Luc – it was really cool and I thank him. We can say that the story is fictional, but yet so true on many points. I really live there, it’s really my garden, I’ve been skating these spots for a long time – I really like to skate so I hope it shows through the clip.”
The video for Annabel arrives ahead of Ash’s performances at Live At Leeds, Teddy Rocks Festival in Dorset and BBC’s Biggest Weekend Festival in Belfast later this month.
The track listing for Islands is:
1. True Story
4. Confessions In the Pool
5. All That I Have Left
6. Don’t Need Your Love
8. Did Your Love Burn Out?
9. Silver Suit
10. It’s A Trap
