New Release & Video: Jon Boden – All The Stars Are Coming Out Tonight

Jon Boden, the former Bellowhead frontman, has unveiled the video for his single, All The Stars Are Coming Out Tonight, taken from his forthcoming Afterglow album, due for release this Friday (October 6th)

Take a watch below…

Speaking about the track, Boden says, “Without easy access to electric light and with a shortage of oil, our lives will again become bounded by the astronomical cycle of the universe, and our relationship with the stars will become closer, uninhibited by artificial light pollution. I wanted the stars to have a big presence in the album, particularly Orion who, as a ‘hunter’, is someone who our hero identifies with as he searches the city for a girl he knew once but hasn’t seen for many years”

Afterglow is the second part of a post-apocalyptic album trilogy from Jon, following 2009’s Songs From The Floodplain, which explored life in a post-peak oil future

He’ll also be taking the record on tour, visiting…
