Love Fame Tragedy has debuted a video for his just-dropped new single, 'Riding A Wave'

Following its first airing on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show just a few moments ago, Love Fame Tragedy has debuted a new video for his track 'Riding A Wave'.

It's another early teaser from Murph's second EP 'Five Songs To Briefly Fill The Void', which features his pals Bastille’s Dan Smith, Crystal Fighters’ Eleanor Fletcher, and Maddi-Jean Waterhouse, and arrives next month.

“The lyrics are definitely the most personal I’ve ever written," he says of this latest instalment, inspired by the ups and downs of a relationship. "I'm pretty sure anyway. It was recorded in London and took on several shapes before we landed on one that stuck."

The video's director, Tyler Cunningham adds: "The world feels so fragile at the moment that I’ve been trying to maximize life on a day-to-day basis, rather than planning ahead as much as I used to. I wanted to bring that anxiety to life here, exploring the mercilessness of mortality and how our next second is never promised.

"It was important to me, though, that we approach the concept with a sense of humour - an understanding that while life can be a crushing, uncontrollable series of events, it can also be liberating to just lean in and try to enjoy the ride."
