Johnny Flynn has just released a new animated video for his powerful new single ‘Barnacled Warship’ which also features on his album Been Listeneing. The video is directed by Christian DeVita. Christian was the lead storyboard artist on Wes Anderson’s ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’ as well as Tim Burton’s forthcoming ‘Frankenweenie’. With such talent on-board you can expect nothing less than a great music video, you won’t be disappointed as this black and white animation unfolds and adds strong imagery and emotion to one of the best tracks, in my opinion, from Been Listening.
This is the second single to be taken from Been Listening. It’s due for release on the 16th August. For the collector fans out there try and get your hands on the limited-edition 7″ vinyl which will be backed with two poems, specially written and recorded by Johnny as B-sides for the single. It will also be available digitally.
