Watch :: Snow Patrol debut new song 'Life On Earth' with Tim Peake-approved video
Words: Ellie Ward
After recently debuting ‘Don’t Give In,’ Snow Patrol now follow the lead single from their forthcoming album 'Wildness', with ‘Life On Earth'.
The music video was premiered today by British Astronaut Tim Peake and was shot at the European Space Agency in Holland.
The band will release a special limited 10” of ‘Don’t Give In’ backed with ‘Life On Earth’ for Record Store Day on April 21.
'Wildness' marks the band’s first record in seven years. Frontman and songwriter Gary Lightbody says of the album:
“There are many types of wildness, but I think it can be distilled into two: the wildness of the modern age, all its confusion, illogic and alienation and a more ancient wildness. Something primal, alive and beautiful that speaks to our true connectivity, our passion, our love, our communion with nature and each other. This is the kind of wildness the album is centered around. The loss of it. Trying to reconnect with it. To remember it.”
Last night, the band performed their first live show since August 2013 at London’s Islington Assembly Hall. The band has upcoming sold-out performances in New York City and Los Angeles in April and throughout Ireland & the UK in May (full dates below). Remaining tickets are available here.
