GOLD104.3 is excited to share the worldwide premiere of Guy Pearce’s new video clip for His Body, taken from his second album The Nomad.
Having wrapped filming in London for an upcoming release of ‘The Christmas Carol’, Guy called The Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show from the Amsterdam home he shares with his partner, Game of Thrones’ Carice Van Houten and their two-year-old son.
Guy told Christian he has “always made music… I’d always kept it private, but I thought it was time to start letting it out into the world”
‘His Body’ is the fifth and final music video from his second album, The Nomad, a collection of deeply personal, original songs, written in the wake of his marriage breakup and subsequently finding a new life after the birth of his first child.
“It’s a song about falling apart – about the failing of one’s emotional and physical self. It also takes in our identity and how that can become lost or displaced.”
“I wanted to look at the question of how we identify ourselves and how precarious that can be, particularly if we fall into traps like substance abuse.
“Kerry Brown did a fantastic job creating this clip and helping me realise a variety of alter-egos that were surfacing for me during a pretty difficult time – a time a few years ago when I didn’t handle things that well.
“Thankfully I was able to eventually pull myself together. I’m aware that others aren’t so fortunate.
“A big Thank You to Kerry for directing this cryptic and obtuse story, and of course a big thank you to our Prague crew that ran around like mad with us for a couple of days. It was great fun!”
