Liam Gallagher fans stoked about the iconic British pop-rocker's upcoming spring romp through the U.S. can whet their appetites with a new official video for “Paper Crown.” The song is from the ex-Oasis star's chart-topping debut solo album As You Were, which dropped Oct. 6, 2017 via Warner/Parlophone.
NME reports May 1 that the “Paper Crown” stars British actress Sienna Guillory (“Resident Evil,” “Eragon”). Although Gallagher has released a number of live videos from the new album and one lyric video, “Paper Crown” is only the third song to receive an official music video along with the most recent single “Come Back to Me” and the pre-release lead single “Wall of Glass.”
The 3:28 minute clip opens with Guillory, elegantly attired in a sequined dress, staring pensively into a mirror to the strains of an acoustic guitar intro. The camera scans the room to reveal duplicate versions of the woman talking to herself in various situations and locations, as she mouths Gallagher's lyrics, singing, “When they gave you roses and believed your wild excuses/You were sealing the deal.”
As You Were features 12 tracks is available to order here in a variety of bundles in CD, vinyl, digital and streaming formats. Fans can check out the official video for “Paper Crown” above.
