aaamusic | On 04, Aug 2010
Directed by Christian DeVita, lead storyboard artist on Wes Anderson’s ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’ as well as Tim Burton’s forthcoming ‘Frankenweenie’, ‘Barnacled Warship’ is a staggeringly beautiful video.
‘Barnacled Warship’ is the second single to be taken from Johnny Flynn‘s new album ‘Been Listening’. It’s released on the 16th August via Transgressive Records and will be available as a digital download, and on limited-edition 7″ vinyl. The vinyl will be backed with two poems, specially written and recorded by Johnny as B-sides for the single.
