November 29, 2018 - David Gray releases the video for his new single ‘The Sapling’, the lead-off track from forthcoming new album Gold In A Brass Age, due for release on March 8, 2019 via IHT Records / AWAL Recordings.
Gray personally sought out Baltimore-based zoetrope artist Eric Dyer to create the kaleidoscopic clip which now accompanies ‘The Sapling’. The video alludes to the track's rumination on the cyclical brevity of life and ecology with projected time lapse footage of germinating acorns, scaled-up to hypnotic effect.
