Katie Melua has shared a video for her new single, Your Longing Is Gone.

The breezy, folk-pop song is the latest preview of her new album, 'Album No. 8', which is set to arrive on October 16 through BMG. It features the Georgian Philharmonic Orchestra and boasts production by Leo Abrahams, while lyrically addressing falling out of love. She said:  

“As a female artist who has sung about love and desire, I was interested in exploring how to handle the fading of love and the waning of that desire. It happens in real life, and there are nuances involved and those nuances in real life are of great importance. In both the writing and the record making we have tried to capture that reality, painted with acceptance and a celebration of the good times.”

Head below to watch the track's video that was shot in Batumi in Georgia, where Melua holidayed as a child. "I wanted to work with the Georgian photographer/videographer Mariam Sitchinava who is able to capture women on camera looking genuinely beautiful and real, without any mannerisms or exaggerations,” she said.

Melua was due to support the record with a UK and Ireland tour this year but it was cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
