He’s today shared a video for one of its tracks, ‘He’s Got His Mother’s Hips’.
According to John, the song is “about a cheeseball doing all he can to get into a woman’s pants, making a total ass of himself. It’s a fun song built on disgust.”
The animated video was created by Casey Redmond and Ewan Jones Morris. Of the video Ewan says: “I just thought it was about time for another Peter Gabriel ‘Sledgehammer’ video and John was up for it. Thirteen animators in total, including us. The highlight for me was 24 hours in in the cool drizzle of Iceland to meet up with John, at the height of the British heat wave”. Casey adds: “Always a delight to work with John. For this disco-tinged track we decided to get some of the hardest-partying animators we knew together for a right old knees-up, and this was the result”.
