Video of the Moment #2169: Thomas Cohen

Former lead singer of S.C.U.M. and now a singer/songwriter in his own right, Thomas Cohen released his debut solo album back in May. As one might imagine, the songwriting on ‘Bloom Forever’ was influenced by the sudden and tragic death of his wife Peaches Geldof in 2014. While Rebecca previously featured LP single ‘Hazy Shades’ for us here on TGTF in April ahead of the album’s release, Cohen has a new visual for us this week.

Of the song itself ‘New Morning Comes’, he says, “The song is simple really, it’s about finding new hope out of hopelessness.” Director of its accompanying promo Victor Gutierrez said he took his artistic cues from a photograph of John Lennon sat in a limousine by Kishin Shinoyama. “In the image, John is successful and alone, looking strong and sensitive at the same time. Death foreshadows the image. Still Lennon seems brave, especially for his solo work at the time that explored his emotions, his psyche, and shares his vulnerabilities.” Watch the new video for ‘New Morning Comes’ below. Cohen’s debut album ‘Bloom Forever’, recorded and finished in Iceland, is now available from Stolen Recordings.
