Black Country, New Road have shared a video for their recent single, Concorde.

The six-minute track debuted in November as the third preview of the band's new LP, 'Ants From Up There', due out on February 4. It follows the previous singles Bread Song and Chaos Space Marine.

The Maxim Kelly-directed clip, meanwhile, sees the band collaborating with independent production company Caviar. Kelly said:

"On the surface, the concept was straightforward, a walking video: An Ant from "up there", sings Concorde.

"But, for a band who namecheck everyone from Scott Walker to Kanye West, and the pronounced mix of genres in their music, it felt right to take an analogous approach with the visuals. Throw as many references together as possible and see if we, too, could get it all to hold together as a piece.

"We took the 6 minute+ runtime as an asset. It gave us the time needed to weave as much as possible into the film. A walking video in parts, but also with a narrative running through. We combined miniatures with VFX, and flanked the film with Archival footage.

"The band were so supportive and amazing. They gave us the encouragement to just go off on one! And being a massive fan of their music, it was a genuine pleasure to work with them on this film."

They'll accompany the record's release with their biggest London show to date at the Roundhouse on February 8. Following that, they have North American performances scheduled up to March, with a UK tour in the diary for April.
