Tom Chaplin - lead singer of Keane - has released his first single from upcoming debut solo album The Wave, paired with this poignant, scenic video directed by David East.

Its a solemn yet hopeful video which sees the singer going on a solitary walk through beautiful British countryside, reflecting upon the pained state of mind he has found himself in throughout his life.


"This simple piece expresses the journey, both physical and emotional, that Tom has been on, from Keane to where he is now. The video is about him coming out of a dark place, shown by the journey he makes over the rugged landscapes of the peak district. The change in light over the day was a great metaphor for him making it through his battle with drug addiction."
