Watch: King Creosote & Jon Hopkins Post ‘Third Swan’ Video

The track features backing vocals from KT Tunstall.

King Creosote & Jon Hopkins recently released 7’ single ‘Third Swan’, the track taken from the Jubilee Edition of Mercury-nominated album, ‘Diamond Mine’.

Now, the Elliot Dear-directed video for the song - which also features backing vocals from KT Tunstall - has been posted online.

Of the track, Kenny says:

‘The much revisited inspirational well of ructions, relationships and regrettable behaviour has very recently been replenished with a leaky bucket of political angst, due in no small part to James Robertson’s fine novel ‘and the land lay still’. ‘Third swan’ is also a comment on how euphoria and despair sit side by side, with a few St. Andrews place names thrown in for good measure. To exist as the ugly duckling between two paragons of swan-like virtue is, no doubt, the metaphor that ties all of this together. In short, there was a lot swirling around my head in the dark weeks leading up to the end of 2011, and it had to end up on this, the penultimate page, of the Diamond Mine travelogue.’
