Daniel Wolfe's first music video for over two years is about to be released - a gripping eight minute film for Paolo Nutini's Iron Sky.

Since directing his acclaimed video for The Shoes' Time To Dance - in which Jake Gyllenhaall portrays a serial killer slaughtering funseekers in East London – Wolfe has gone on to direct his first feature, Catch Me Daddy, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year to excellent reviews, and will be released later this year. 

Now he has returned to music videos - where he made his name with his promos for Plan B and others – with a film for Iron Sky from Paolo Nutini's platinum-selling album Caustic Love, depicting a grimly realistic dystopian futureworld full of brutalist concrete buildings, with a people oppressed by an authoritarian power, and where resistance brings brain-splitting agony.  

"I was sent the track with no explanation from Paolo," says Daniel, on how the project began. "As a child I stared at the planet Jupiter and had a vivid hallucinatory experience. A feeling of abject terror. In bondage to an omnipotent machine. When I heard the Chaplin quote (from the song) I remembered this clearly. So the video became a dystopian vision of the future as imagined by a child in the 80’s."

The video will be launching later this week at Paolo Nutini's official website and his YouTube channel.
