French metal legends Gojira have launched a video for a 'standalone' new single, Another World. It's the first original new material to emerge from the band since 2016's acclaimed Magma album.

“It is with great excitement that we’re presenting our new track Another World, says frontman Joe Duplantie. "Ferdinand Magellan once said: ‘It is with an iron will that we’ll embark on the most daring of all endeavours, to meet the shadowy future without fear and conquer the unknown.' 

"Is humanity doomed, or will we survive nature’s wrath? Take a glimpse into our shadowy future by watching our take on 1968’s Planet Of The ApesAnother World!”

The video for Another World was directed by Maxime Tiberhgien and Sylvain Favre, who worked together on the short film After The Collapse, which covered similarly apocalyptic territory. 

Yesterday Gojira launched a teaser campaign for the track using the hashtag #AnotherPlaceToBe, while last month it was announced that Gojira's US tour with Deftones and Poppy had been rescheduled for 2021. Full dates below.
