Fat White Family - Work (Official Video)

Video still photo credit: Spela Cedilnik

Returning with the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming album, Forgiveness Is Yours, out this Friday, 26th of April on Domino, Fat White Family have shared the glorious Work. Accompanied by a video directed by CC Wade the video/track tells a tale of "obsession and a man’s relentless desire for greatness to the detriment of his life, his body and his sanity". Talking about the track and video Lias said: "This tune and lyric was written by Nathan Saoudi, with a little help from the indomitable Jess Winter. It became a bit of nightmare in production, like, serious graft. Anyway, it’s one of @braindestiny’s best. The idea for the video came from watching Rocky IV on the telly at our family xmas. Nothing brings people together quite like Rock IV. The way Stallone single handedly brings down the Soviet Union. We can all learn something form that. I enjoyed it so much I started binging on Rocky films in January. Most of the other ones are shit, but there’s a scene in the third one - Rock III - where Rock has to accept he’s lost it, grown decadent, delusional, flaccid...Apollo Creed (RIP) has to drag his arse to LA to train him back up the old way, the hard way, the way it USED to be…Between both of these lessons one might learn everything needs to about life, about ambition, about success being nothing more than failure in drag...C C Wade were the obvious choice to direct this homage. They are truth. They are two people that allow whatever their working on to absorb them entirely. There is no limit at Haus C C Wade. No ceiling. No basement. No ledge. All in."
