‘Neptune’s concept has now been given a fitting video as director Dave East gives Foals a promo to be proud of.
“‘Neptune’ is about trying to escape and mortality, where going into space or dying is the only solution,” Yannis told DIY in 2019.
“It’s a kind of out of body experience where you’re leaving behind all the mess; there’s a sense of inescapable fate to it, where you’re wanting to pass on into a place thats away from all this. And then whatever happens next, whether it’s in another record or whatever, will be what happens next. It felt like a fitting way to end a long journey.”
That emotion is wonderfully captured in the epic video below. Watch the video for ‘Neptune’ below:
