Matt Healy plays a clown in The 1975 video for 'A Change Of Heart' – watch
Matt Healy struts in an abandoned fairground…
Matt Salacuse James Hendicott, 22nd April 2016 Matt Healy stars as a creepy crown in an abandoned fairground in the latest video by The 1975, for the single 'A Change Of Heart'.
The frontman also wrote the new video, which is directed by Tim Mattia, and released a few notes on the recording alongside the recording.
Healy's notes read "I want to convey the sense of resignation in being a clown. I am, have been and will always be a clown. I think it can tire people. For the sake of subtext and self-reference it should be black and white. Also more chic."
In the footage, Healy dances, rides the bumper cars and does magic tricks.
Check out what Healy and Mattia came up with via YouTube, below:
'A Change Of Heart' is taken from the band's UK number one album 'I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It,' the album that broke a record for the longest title ever for US number one recently.
The Manchunian four-piece completed a fifteen-date sold out UK tour recently, and will appear at Reading and Leeds Festivals and at Glastonbury this summer.
Meanwhile, Healy caused controversy last month when he said that dating Taylor Swift would emasculate him. Speaking of his 'flirtation' with the pop star, Healy said:
"It's not really anything to talk about, because if she wasn't Taylor Swift we wouldn't be talking about her. She wasn't a big impact on my life. It's just interesting to me how interested the world is about Taylor Swift."
Asked whether he has a fear of losing himself when he enters into a relationship, Healy replied: "Yeah. Absolutely. And the reason I mention that is because if I had gone out with Taylor Swift I would've been, 'Fucking hell! I am NOT being Taylor Swift's boyfriend.' You know, 'FUCK. THAT.' That's also a man thing, a de-masculinating, emasculating thing." Video: The 1975's Matty Healy talks about writing 'I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It'
