Gaz Coombes Shares New Single Long Live The Strange

Monday, 28 November 2022 Written by Jon Stickler

Gaz Coombes has released a new single, Long Live The Strange.

Following up September's Don't Say It's Over, the vibrant indie-rock track was penned by the Supergrass frontman after he took his daughter Tiger to see Cavetown in Oxford in 2020. Commenting on how music has the power to bring people together, he said:

"This song was written as a celebration of the weird and wonderful and as a reminder to embrace that at all times."

"The show had a big impact on me," he added. "It was what live performance is all about, connecting with an audience that consists of anybody and everybody who wants to be part of it, it's fully inclusive and I found that quite powerful."

He described the feeling of connectivity he experienced as, "obviously strange in the nicest sense of the word."

Head below to watch the song's accompanying video, directed by Niall Trask, who explained: "When I was brought onto the project, Gaz had already been living amongst the community of mannequins for several months. His knowledge of them allowed me to have no issues directing them nor overcome the language barrier.

"The whole process was fascinating and certainly a culture shock; coming from South London, I found the silence and stillness almost deafening. It’s certainly one of the most beautiful experiences I’ve ever had as a filmmaker."

Coombes will release his fourth solo album, 'Turn The Car Around', on January 13 via Hot Fruit Recordings/ Virgin Music. It'll serve as the final part of a trilogy that began with his 2015 LP 'Matador'. Part two was 2018's 'World's Strongest Man'.

He'll support it with UK and European tour dates in the spring, following in-store shows earlier in the year. Tickets are on sale.
