The Cribs have shared the video for Never Thought I’d Feel Again, the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming eighth album, Night Network, which is released via Sonic Blew/[PIAS] on Friday, November 13th 2020.
Talking about the track the band said:
We wrote this song with a very simple goal in mind - we wanted something very simple, dancey, and positive/uplifting. We were talking about how a song like "The Locomotion" is probably about as perfect a pop song as you can get - it's so immediate and catchy, without any hang-ups or self-consciousness. That's what we were trying to do here - just be totally unabashed and heart on sleeve, no punk guilt, no baggage - just pure energy. Wakefield Motown, you might say...
The video, once again co-directed by Andy Knowles and Nick Scott, who worked on previous track Running Into You and I Don’t Know Who I Am, was shot in the legendary Toe Rag Studios in Hackney, London and features comedian John-Luke Roberts.
Talking about the video, Andy Knowles said:
It’s easy to continually work with The Cribs, as the songs always serve as such a great place of inspiration for video ideas. With this song’s references to love, loyalty and loneliness it was important to show a range of emotions, and we certainly got that from John-Luke Robert’s (Radio Host) performance.
