Sun. Sand. Instagrammed images. Stock footage.
It’s all here in the new Sleeper video, when a deliberately retro images prefaces their new album in the video for ‘The Sun Also Rises’.
It’s been 21 years since the Britpop legends last released a full-length album, but the anticipation has been slowly building towards the release of their comeback disc ‘The Modern Age’, released on March 22nd.
The live shows have been superb. The coloured vinyl singles have been snapped up eagerly. New material has crept into the live sets. The signs are all there for the new album to be a match for anything Sleeper has released before.
You can check out the new video below.
Fans will also have the opportunity to grab a very limited edition Sleeper live EP on Record Store Day 2019 [More details here]
