Pil release Bettie Page promo

Public Image Limited have released a video for their track Bettie Page.

Frontman John Lydon told Rolling Stone that the early Playboy Playmate was a “pioneer”. It appears on PiL’s latest album What The World Needs Now, released in September.

They previously unveiled a video for Double Trouble.

On the album writing and recording process, Lydon told Classic Rock last month: “We were all gagging at the bit to get in and just enjoy each other’s company. And this is the end result. That’s not to say that we’re perfect human beings. We had arguments, but they always led to good things.

“There’s none of that petulance that I’ve seen with other people I’ve worked with over the years. PiL is now in a position where I’ve always wanted us to be – completely independent of outside authority.”

PiL are currently on tour across North America.
