Tim Bowness has just released his new album Lost In The Ghost Light, which came out today via InsideOut Music.

And to mark the occasion, he’s launched a video for the track Kill The Pain That’s Killing You.

Bowness says: “Kill The Pain That’s Killing You is definitely the odd one out on Lost In The Ghost Light. It’s the angriest piece on the album by far and it depicts a point when the musician Lost In The Ghost Light concerns is spiralling out of control in terms of both his family life and career.

“In basic terms, it’s a hellish account of a night on the town mid-tour, while his wife is having an affair back home. It’s also chronicling how music is in the background at this particular point in his life.”

Bowness adds: “Bruce Soord’s brilliantly manic lead guitar lines are supported by a fine David Rhodes riff, and a frenetic Colin Edwin and Andrew Booker rhythm section. On top of that, Andrew Keeling’s flute and string quartet arrangements take the piece into some interesting and unexpected territory, I think.”

Bowness previously issued a lyric video for the track You Wanted To Be Seen.
