The View frontman Kyle Falconer has shared the video for his new single ‘Stress Ball’. Check it out first on NME below.
Following his 2018 solo debut, ‘No Thank You’ (an album named Liam Gallagher while on vacation together), Falconer is now sharing the first footage from his forthcoming new Frankie Siragusa-produced album, ‘No Love Songs For Laura ‘.
I wrote « Stress Ball » in a taxi on the way to a session, « Falconer said. » It occurred to me right away: I came to the session with Justin Stanley and we knew instantly that he had something there. For me, it was about using this song as therapy to relieve stress. I tried to convey it in my voice by making it fun and enjoyable, rather than a serious song about stress. «
« I’ve been writing too seriously for a while and I wanted something uplifting that would make you happy and optimistic when you listen to it. »
The video fits that same mood, and it shows Falconer and his accomplice loosening up and becoming destructive in a junkyard.
In ‘No Love Songs For Laura’, Falconer will explore the influences of Motown, soul and funk on material recorded over the summer at The Libertines’ recently opened Albion Rooms hotel and studio in Margate.
Falconer now has former Oasis mogul and Creation Records head Alan McGee as his manager, and is planning some socially estranged live shows as soon as the blocking restrictions are lifted.
Falconer will release ‘No Love Songs For Laura’ later this year. Fans can exclusively order it here.
