Watch Young Fathers depict world leaders as children in ‘Toy’ video

Young Fathers depict world leaders as children in ‘Toy’ video

The track features on latest album, ‘Cocoa Sugar’.

Young Fathers released third album ‘Cocoa Sugar’ back in March - and today have shared a video for track ‘Toy’.

The promo - directed by Salomon Lighthelm - features a series of world leaders… as small children.

The director says: “The tone of the track is so visceral and abrasive, which I think marries the political subject matter perfectly. I honestly just really like the idea of seeing dictators behaving like spoilt little children - pissed with the world, because things aren’t going their way. Looking at the political climate of our time, I’d say truth is certainly stranger than fiction.”

In-fighting. Self-doubt. An entire scrapped album recording. This is the story of ‘A Hero’s Death’, and how it helped piece Fontaines DC back together again.
