Reef have released a video for their brand new single titled My Sweet Love.

The song features guest vocals from Sheryl Crow and has been taken from Reef's upcoming album Revelation – their first new record since 2000’s Getaway. It’ll arrive on May 4 via earMUSIC.

The video was shot in a disused barn in Bruton, Somerset, close to where Reef rehearse and was directed by Heidi Greensmith, who has previously worked with artists including Paul Weller, Bernard Butler and Fatboy Slim.

Reef frontman Gary Stringer says: “We didn’t want to just make a good record, we wanted to make a great record. We were writing the songs for two and a half years, road-testing them when we were on tour.

“We’d play four or five new songs every night, really watching the crowd. If their eyes glazed over or they went to the bar, then we dropped those songs. But if a song engaged with them – a melody they can hook into, a guitar riff – then that was a real pointer for how we went about it.

“Hopefully that’s helped make the album is as strong as it is.”

Reef are currently out on the road for a number of live shows, including the Louder-sponsored Britrock Must Be Destroyed UK tour which also features Dodgy, The Wildhearts and Terrorvision.
