Lonely Robot have released a lyric video for their track How Bright Is The Sun?.

It’s the second song taken from the John Mitchell project’s upcoming album Under Stars, with a video for Ancient Ascendant touching down last month.

The follow-up to 2016’s Please Come Home and 2017’s The Big Dream will be released on April 26 via Inside Out on CD, 2LP/CD, as a limited edition digipak CD with three bonus tracks, and on digital and streaming platforms.

Mitchell says: “How Bright Is The Sun? is a cheery lament to our beautiful star. How much longer will she burn for? Will we even be around for half that time? Questions within questions. I hope you like it.”

The lyric video comes just days after a collaboration between Lonely Robot and the UK’s Space Rocks was announced.

At the Everyman Cinema in King’s Cross, London, on April 23, fans will get a chance to hear the album in full prior to its official launch. The evening will also see Mitchell take part in a Q&A session with Space Rocks co-founder Alexander Milas to discuss the influence of space and sci-fi on Lonely Robot’s trilogy of albums.
