Evergreen Rick Astley returns with a stripped-back performance video directed by Vaughan Arnell - but it's not quite just the man and his mic.
James Blunt 'Love Me Better' by Vaughan Arnell
One look at his Twitter feed will tell you that despite your feelings for James Blunt, the man is incredibly self-aware. And self-deprecating to a tee. A recent Blunt line went: ""You thought 2016 was bad? I'm releasing a new album in 2017."
With that as a driving force, Vaughan Arnell reunites with Blunt to provide the ideal vehicle for the album's first single Love Me Better, blending hyper-colourful pop slickness and tongue-in-cheek humour in the kind a location the singer knows only too well - a neon-drenched nightclub.
And tonight, Blunt happens to be the least popular patron in the club - but coming to terms with his fate. Imagine if Nicolas Winding-Refn's Only God Forgives was actually about a 42-year-old man who can't keep up with nightclub culture despite his best intentions and you're most of the way there.
