A Simple Beautiful Truth will be released as the next single from Wild Beasts on 19th May 2014. This is the second single from their fourth album, Present Tense.
The accompanying video was filmed by Klaus Thymann. The band had the following to say about it: ‘We were inspired enough by the absurdist approach taken by Talking Heads to don electric suits and dance in the ether on the top of a Beacons mountain. We wanted to capture the weightlessness of a song like A Simple Beautiful Truth, to attempt something so ridiculous as to be sublime. The experience was strangely liberating and we asked ourselves why we hadn’t done this before.’
Wild Beasts have just completed a UK tour in support of Present Tense, The band are currently on tour in Europe and will return to the UK to perform at The Great Escape, End Of The Road and Bestival.
